The Patient Education Outreach Program, spearheaded by the Dermatology and Clinical Research Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Fellowship, aims to create a platform for high school students passionate about healthcare. Our primary objective is to empower these students to write and publish informative blogs focusing on various skin conditions, including but not limited to acne vulgaris and eczema.
In this program, each participating student is paired with a dedicated premedical fellow. This mentorship ensures regular meetings to develop outlines, arrange patient interviews, and craft engaging blog content. By fostering this mentor-student relationship, we aim to enhance the educational experience for aspiring healthcare professionals.
Furthermore, students involved in the program are encouraged to attend community events organized by the fellowship. These events may include free skin cancer screenings and educational dinners, providing valuable opportunities for networking, learning, and community engagement. We believe that by combining hands-on mentorship and community involvement, our program contributes to the holistic development of the next generation of healthcare professionals.
