Choose DO Medical School Expo hosted by Georgia Tech
Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 4:00-8:00 PM ET
This Choose DO Medical School Expo is a free event for all students interested in learning more about the medical profession and how to strengthen their medical school application. Note: this event is open to any pre-medical student (you do not have to be a Georgia Tech student to attend).
Join us for this in-depth look at the medical profession and what it means to be an osteopathic physician (DO). Presentations will be provided by current osteopathic physicians, representatives from the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), and current medical students. After presentations, a medical school fair with representatives from over 20 of our colleges of medicine will be held. Students will be able to ask questions and introduce themselves to admissions staff from the colleges.
