ENGAGE WITH CURRENT MEDICAL STUDENTS

MEDICAL SPECIALTY LUNCHEONS: Speak with M1 & M2 students about your specialty during a 1-hour, informal luncheon held at Scott Hall.
STUDENT LEARNING COMMUNITY DINNERS: Assist one of eight Student Learning Communities with advising, mentoring, career planning, and medical professionalism over a meal! These dinners, held at the School of Medicine in the Margherio Conference Room from 6-7:30PM, are arranged in small groups; with each physician personally interacting with current medical students!
SHADOWING: Allow a student to shadow you at your office or hospital.
DINNER WITH A DOC: Host dinner for a current student or students in your home or at a restaurant and share about your chosen specialty, establishing work/home-life balance, etc.
HELP OUR STUDENTS TRAVEL (HOST): Provide a free place to stay for medical students who are traveling to out-of-state residency interviews or participating in away-rotations.

ENGAGE WITH ALUMNI AND FRIENDS

FUTURE DOCS: An event hosted at the WSU School of Medicine for children ages 6-12, held March 2 from 9AM-1PM. Scott Hall transforms into a hospital, where classrooms become fun and informative workshops!

They help develop programs, services, benefits and communications that foster awareness, generate pride and encourage involvement among alumni, students and the community at large.
