Prospective Physician Association (PPA)
An Affiliation of the Graduate Biomedical Student Association (GBSA)
The Purpose of PPA:
To create an effective communication link between the students of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the multiple schools within the Rowan University community. This would allow those students of GSBS, who want to pursue a higher medical education, a chance to engage in a forum that focuses on medical careers. This organization would concentrate on inviting guest lecturers, collaborating local events with surrounding medical schools, organize physician shadowing programs and providing new students with a mentorship program to help them transition from a graduate student to a potential medical student. Along with the promotion of higher integration within the GSBS, this organization also functions to increase socialization within the Rowan University family.
