Jefferson Medical College’s rural
Physician Shortage Area Program (PSAP)
Informational meeting on Friday, May 13, 2011
interested pre-medical students from rural areas or small towns
planning to practice in similar areas
Jefferson Medical College is hosting an informational meeting on Friday May 13, 2011 (10:00 AM – 2:00 PM) for pre-medical students who are interested in the rural Physician Shortage Area Program (PSAP). This meeting will take place on Jefferson’s Philadelphia, Pennsylvania campus, and is specifically geared for those students (freshman through seniors):
1.. who have grown up or lived in a small town or rural area (i.e. not urban and not suburban), and who are also 2.. committed to practicing in a small town or rural area (not necessarily their home town).
Please share this information with your students – and encourage any students who fit the PSAP goals and want to learn more about the program to join us in May. Additional information about Jefferson’s PSAP can be found at: http://www.tju.edu/psap/
During this day, students will be provided with more specific information regarding the PSAP and the admissions process – and will have an opportunity to meet with faculty and students involved in the program. Lunch will be provided, and a campus tour will be offered after the meeting for those who are interested.
Interested students can sign up for the program, or obtain additional information, by contacting contact Lisa Michaluk, MSEd, Education Coordinator, via email at Lisa.Michaluk@jefferson.edu (or by phone at 215-955-2362). (There is limited space, so please advise students to RSVP early.)
