Hub Small Group: Alternative career ideas to white coat medicine

Thursday, November 11, 2021
2:00-3:00 PM
Are you on a pre-med track as a health or science major but are unsure if you want to pursue medical school? Join an Internship Program Coordinator for an advice-laden discussion on career prospects outside the clinic and finding, applying, and securing an internship in healthcare and public health fields. We will explore careers in the healthcare and science fields that do not require a medical degree and do not include research or teaching. We also cover strategies for entering the healthcare field through certifications. The small group setting will allow plenty of time for discussion—so bring your questions!

You should attend this workshop if you are:
A liberal arts and/or sciences (LSA) student
In a health or science academic background but are interested in pivoting away from medical school
Exploring alternative career paths to medical school that do not include research or teaching
Seeking experiential learning opportunities in healthcare and science

What you’ll gain by attending:
Learn how to effectively search for alternative careers in healthcare
Find out what types of experiences add value to your undergraduate and career journeys
Explore alternative ways to gain exposure to opportunities that do not require medical school

High Interaction
Video and audio presence is strongly encouraged
The event will mainly be interactive through some combination of full-group interactions, small-group interactions, worksheets, and Q&As.
