Frequently Asked Questions
What are points?
Our organization requires accumulation of participation “points” for membership. As a member you are expected to attend two meeting PER SEMESTER as well as two community events and one social event PER SEMESTER. That means you need ten points by the end of the year.
Will we be doing any volunteer activities?
Yes, every month we have a particular place that needs volunteers where we go and provide helping hands to whoever needs it. They are not necessarily strictly related to medical fields.
This year we plan on expanding our volunteer opportunities. Important for your medical school application is a commitment to a weekly volunteer opportunity. We plan on offering one or two events that members can attend every week.
What happens at the meetings?
At each meeting, we invite a guest speaker related to the medical field to come and give a speech that provides the students with valuable information. We also discuss our volunteer activities for the month.
