Business AfterSchool A Day in the Life of A Med Student
Come join us as we explore what life as a University of Washington med student looks like!
This workshop will give students a glimpse at what it is like to be a med student here in Spokane. First, volunteers from the school will walk through week-to-week schedules. They will discuss exams, tutorials, PCP, and anatomy. They will look at case-based learning and showcase a short patient case. Then, the UW representatives will walk attendees through how to be successful in med school and what to do now in high school if they think they may be interested in pursuing a healthcare career.
Business AfterSchool is a series of career connected learning workshops hosted by local businesses for students in grades 6-12 in the greater Spokane region. Students are invited to attend a workshop to gain real life skills, experience learning in a workplace setting, and explore local career pathways through local innovations highlighted by business professionals. Teachers, parents, advisors, and mentors are all welcome to attend as well!
Students studying at the UW School of Medicine in Spokane complete their first 18 months of medical school – called the Foundations Phase – during courses in the Schoenberg Center on the Gonzaga campus, as well in the community. The Foundations Phase integrates basic science and clinical education, as well as rural training early in the curriculum and is taught by clinical skills instructors and foundations guides. Aspiring physician assistants in the UW’s MEDEX Northwest program in Spokane also take courses on Gonzaga’s campus.
