Future Physician's Day 2018
North Central and Northern Highland AHECs, along with the Medical College of Wisconsin-Central WI Campus (MCW-CW), hosted the 2nd annual ‘Future Physician’s Day’ on Friday, March 30, 2018. This year, the program expanded to two levels, 1.0 for high school upper-classmen, and 2.0 for early undergraduate college students interested in medicine. In total, 27 students attended and provided wonderful feedback on what they took away from the program. Participant goals for the day included:
getting a glimpse into what it's like to be a medical student.
gaining insight into the knowledge and skills needed to prepare yourself as a future medical school candidate.
exploring the path to residency.
obtaining information on how to finance medical school.
identifying physician workforce needs in Wisconsin.
A big thank you to MCW-CW for hosting and coordinating the day's activities. Participants performed arm casting and ascultation, learned about the path to medical school and residency, visited the Family Medicine Residency Clinic in Wausau and engaged with residents, and heard first-hand what a day in the life of a primary care physician looks like. Future program plans include adding a 3rd layer, 3.0, which entails a personalized learning experience for upperlevel undergraduates on preparing for medical school applications, essay writing, and interviewing skills. This program is co-sponsored through a strong partnership between North Central AHEC, Northern Highland AHEC, and MCW-Central WI.
