The individual new to medicine is crossing a threshold: Moving from personal independence to professional commitment.
We will talk about how this happens and what your
role will be.
There is no doubt that one of the best ways that the upcoming medical student can learn what Medicine is about is to be a part of the experiences of active, practicing clinicians.
Virtual Shadowing those experiences to you!
We offer weekly programs that address the issues of decisions, the applications process, and real-life stories of practicing physicians who serve those in need of care.
These Sessions will be archived and available for viewing on YouTube at your convenience.
We offer the exam questions for a period of time after
the Sessions. We encourage you to take the exams as soon as you can to document your participation in the Sessions!
