Co-Curricular Seminars

Students attend monthly seminars designed to personalize their experience of caring for vulnerable populations. Students gain insight by relating to people they may consider different from themselves and people who are often stigmatized as patients, including the elderly, homeless, addicted, multiply handicapped, pregnant teens and many others. These forums also provides members of stigmatized populations an opportunity to participate in the education of medical students. Required numbers of seminars vary, depending on which program a student selects to participate in.
