Why consider a career in podiatric medicine?

·          A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) is a specialist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lower extremity disorders, diseases and injuries.

·          DPMs can specialize in a variety of areas such as surgery, orthopedics, or public health. Besides these certified specialties, podiatrists may practice a subspecialty such as sports medicine, pediatrics, dermatology, radiology, geriatrics, or diabetic foot care.

·          The DPM is a vital member of the health-care team. He or she is often the first to detect symptoms of diabetes or peripheral vascular disease because of the human foot’s interrelation with the rest of the body.

 

 

2.  The University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine offers a variety of programs for students interested in a career in medicine.

Which Program is Right for Your Student?

 

Summer Medical School Prep Program

Start Date: June 8-July 12, 2018 (4 weeks)

Master of Medical Science Degree

Start Date: Summer 2018 (12 months)

Your student's goal is to earn a graduate degree that helps him or her become a stronger applicant to medical or other health professional schools through our College of Medicine's core biomedical sciences curriculum.

Dear Colleague,

 

Do you have advisees who are passionate about helping others? A Master of Public Health degree at Saint Louis University could be a great fit for them. 

 

A career in public health is all about helping others and improving health, and our students are getting great jobs after graduation. But they aren't waiting until they graduate to get started helping.

 

For example, our Master of Public Health students organized a Day of Service at the 2016 American Public Health Association annual meeting in Denver, Colorado. They brought local nonprofits together with more than 90 students from public health programs nationwide to volunteer in the community.

 

http://files.constantcontact.com/e482d0f4101/6cbf7e79-0e8d-4044-ae94-9c9f4f2c991b.png


Saint Louis University's Jesuit heritage means service is part of our culture. In fact, we've made the President's Community Service Honor Roll for nine years running. 

 

Encourage your students to register for our prospective student open house this week: Dec. 12 2017 at 5:30 p.m. CST

 

http://files.constantcontact.com/e482d0f4101/910bfa1d-4f7a-4283-b856-d74d8284dafd.jpg

 

We are now accepting applications for the fall 2018 term. Feel free to share my contact information and website with your students.

 

Kind regards,

https://www.informz.net/ADEA/data/images/GoDental%20Newsletter/November%202017/SHPEP-Feature_edited.jpg?cb=469512

 

The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is a free summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested in the health professions. SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and to prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. SHPEP, formerly known as the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP), expanded in 2016 to include a broader array of health professions—part of an effort by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) that works to build a Culture of Health.

Remembering his own experiences in dental school, Academy of General Dentistry Vice President Neil Gajjar, D.D.S., MAGD, offers valuable wisdom for aspiring dental students: “Sometimes, it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel and believe that the hard work was going to pay off someday. But it certainly did.”
