Nov. 21, 2019

Trinitas' Collegiate Medical Mentoring program began in the summer of 2014. This exciting program is designed for students entering their junior or senior college year who are pursuing a career in medicine. Students will be under the direct supervision of an Attending Physician. The departments in which you will have the opportunity to shadow include the Emergency Room, OB/GYN, Hematology/Oncology, and Surgery.

About the Program
During the one month program, each student will receive an individual schedule rotating through the various departments. This schedule will change weekly. All students will have the opportunity to rotate through each department offered. Each Friday at 8:30AM, students will attend a lecture given by one of the attending Physician Supervisors.
