The Fall Lecture Series runs from September through April and takes place once per month from 4:30-6:00PM. Students will participate in lectures and trauma rotations.
Students have the opportunity to participate in lectures directed by surgeons, anesthesiologists, nursing staff, and other medical professionals. These interactive lectures allow the students to explore topics of individual interests while learning more about the multitude of healthcare opportunites available in our community. Lectures are held once a month.
During the eight month series, students may experience first-hand exposure to the medical professional's response and treatment of patient trauma. Students observe physicians, residents, and medical support staff during overnight weekend (Friday and Saturday) rotations.

"Seeing a baby being born was pretty amazing, but I didn't realize how much about childbirth is still a mystery."
The Medical Explorations Program offers a stipend for qualifying students who want to take part in the program but because of financial obligations cannot afford to do so. These stipends are made available through a generous grant from the Cole Foundation along with other individual private donations.
