Fall 2023 Health Careers Week

The 5th annual Health Careers Week is coming, and the Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education, along with the MWC Student Advisory Board, have been working hard to plan a variety of events for pre-health students at all stages! Check out the list of events, and join us at as many as you can to show our guest speakers how wonderful and outgoing our community is!

Ohio Medical Education Day

October 14 - 9:00 am-4:00 pm

During this all-day event, representatives from the medical schools in Ohio and surrounding states provide information that will help potential applicants prepare for their future to become the best physicians that they can be. This will include what you can be doing now to grow as a person, how to build a strong application, and what are the parts of the application cycle. There will be time to hear from a panel of medical students and time to chat with the medical school representatives. An optional tour of the medical school will be available at the end of the day. The cost of the event is $25, and the MWC will be providing a bus. Registration required. If you're interested in riding the bus, please fill out this form now.
