This winter, MEDLIFE is organizing a mobile clinic to RIobamba, Ecuador from December 30th-January 7th for interested Ohio State students within any major. During these trips, students have the opportunity to experience the beauty of an incredible Spanish speaking country, work with local health care professionals to provide healthcare to remote communities surrounding the city, help combat public health issues such as STDs and parasites, as well as complete a development project to improve the lives of the communities in which we will be working. This is a great opportunity for students of all kinds that would like to learn about health care in a developing country.

Med School Q and A Sessions

Every semester the OSU College of Medicine offers Q and A sessions to address questions and concerns held by current pre-med students here at OSU. Each session is held as an informal discussion, where students can come and ask any questions they have, about any step in the daunting Medical School process! In previous sessions they have discussed a wide array of topics, such as gap years, personal statements, the MCAT, the application process, the review of applicants, and any other questions you can imagine.

This semester, starting in September, the Q and A sessions will be held the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 8:00am to 9:00am, and the 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.  Meetings will always be held in Meiling Hall Room 233.
