Pre-medical Science Club members check out Primary Care Day!

Members of the Pre-medical Sciences Club traveled to Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, PA on October 4 for their Primary Care Day 2014.  The program included panel discussions on admissions, primary care medicine, and medical student life. Students also had the opportunity to participate in patient encounters and clinical workshops. Among the offerings were sessions on newborn exams, joint injections, pelvic exams, and skin biopsies.  The program ended with a guided tour of Penn State College of Medicine. Pre-medical Sciences Club members who attended are: Katie Mullen, Eric Elliot, Vincent Yaeger, Alex Schlack, Gabriella Bonchack, Jonathan Perez, Andrew Denisenko, Ali-reza Mobarakl, and Daniel Deignan.  Katie and Daniel reported that the day was very rewarding, and in particular they enjoyed the overall environment of the medical school and learning about primary care.
