BRIDGE is a mentorship program that targets motivated students who are interested in pursuing a career in medicine. The program pairs MD and PA students at PSUCOM with undergraduate students from nearby colleges such as Penn State Harrisburg, York, Gettysburg, Millersville, Bucknell and Franklin & Marshall.
As medical and PA students, you will help to guide the undergraduates through the medical/PA school application process. The program will also offer the opportunity for members to attend simulation lab sessions and hear guest speakers. Our main goal is to provide support and encouragement to college students as they undergo the challenging process of applying to schools. We hope this will encourage students who are truly passionate about the medical field to pursue their dreams and become the best applicant they can be.
No meeting or other BRIDGE event will ever coincide with a test week. We meet once a month on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. These meetings include:
1-on-1 Mentoring Time
Each session will have a focus point (e.g., personal statements, resume building, mock interviews etc)
Speaker or Panel
We will hear from a variety of medical professionals at different stages of training.
Simulation Lab Sessions
Including Basic Life Supports, intubation, suturing, IV, Advanced Life Support, taking vital signs, conducting patient interviews, cadaver lab, etc.
