Career and Professional Development

The Career and Professional Development Committee’s mission is to increase awareness of non-clinical careers in healthcare, and connect students to alumni/professionals in these fields. This semester, we would like to implement a mentorship program to connect members of SCOHP with Margolis Scholars to serve as mentors. We will reach out to Margolis Scholars to determine who is interested and then connect them with SCOHP undergrads who have similar interests.  GRUNCH is a great opportunity for students to connect! We also plan to produce a guidebook of non-clinical careers in healthcare and link students with alumni who are working in these careers. Another way for students to learn about careers in the field will be through a panel, in which Margolis Scholars and/or alumni will be invited to discuss career paths related to health policy (policymaking, research, business, law…).
