Explore your future in medicine. The Black Men in White Coats program gives participants “permission to be great.” It is designed to inspire middle school, high school, college and graduate students interested in pursuing health care careers in medicine or administrative support. From physicians, pharmacists, respiratory therapists and advanced practice practitioners to medical information technology, marketing, legal services and human resources, there are many options available to students.
During this free, in-person event, students will be introduced to health care professionals, job opportunities, mentoring programs and opportunities to work with community organizations to advance their health care careers. Participants will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with health care professionals, participate in live lab demonstrations and learn how to access resources available in their community.
We hope to see you there!
