For Medical Professionals

Why We Need Medical Professionals

Medical Professionals are essential to our program to provide first hand knowledge of the various medical fields. Our goal is to provide students with an accurate representation of the daily life and work of medical professionals in every field across the country. We try to go in depth regarding the unique aspects of each branch of medicine. 

As a medical professional, you would meet with AVS students and speak about your career and field of medicine. Here is a rough outline of what we cover during a 45 minute online session:
