DO vs MD, is There a Difference?

We hope that you are having a great winter break! 

One of the aspects to consider when deciding on your individual futures as healthcare workers is the type of degree you would like to obtain. To that end, here are a few links to websites that document and explain the simple difference between the often contested DO and MD degrees.

At the meeting this Wednesday we will be having a guest doctor speaking about his career. We will also have a student from Johns Hopkins speaking about mentoring opportunities.

Relay For Life!

This will likely be the biggest event of the year!  Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life is an overnight relay-style event where our student body forms teams of people to camp out in the quad overnight (6pm-6am). The members of each team take turns walking around the track for the night.  There will be food, games, activities, and a little bit of friendly competition to see which team can raise the most money!  Fundraising efforts and donations go to the American Cancer Society who continue to help fight back against cancer through research, finding cures, and helping people get well. Pre-Med Society already has its own team, and a goal to raise $10k!! Let’s do it!! To join our team and/or donate follow this link:
