Wednesday, December 7th @ 8:00 PM
Photonics Room 201
We hope you have all had a restful Thanksgiving break, and are ready to finish off the semester. We wanted to e-mail you to let you know that we will be holding a networking event for all AED members next Wednesday, December 7th at the Photonics Building Room 201 (PHO 201) at 8 PM. As mentioned in our first meeting, this is a chance for all of us to share research and shadowing experiences, as well has tips on how to obtain these opportunities.
As this will also count as a general meeting, we encourage all members to attend. (Remember that you are required to attend 3 such meetings for the year!)
Many of us will be able to walk away with clear objectives on where and how to look for worthwhile internships for the spring and summer. This is especially important because many summer internships will soon beginning accepting applications!
The first half of the event will be a short panel consisting of 5 of our members, who will speak about their research and shadowing internships. They will discuss how they began their internships, some specific tips for applications, and what they learned from their experiences. If any of you had a great experience that you’d like to share with the rest of the AED members, please let us know! We are still looking for 1 – 2 more members to be on the panel. (The Panel will be informal, so extensive preparation is not required).
The second half of the event will allow everybody to break out and join two main discussions: One focusing on shadowing and medical school applications and the other focusing on research and internships. This will mainly be for all of you to get to know the other members and network within the organization.
The event will be catered, so come take a break from your studies for an informative night on how to expand your health and medical experience outside of academics! We hope to see everybody there!
