Congratulations to NVCC student Sabrina Melendez-Rosales who was selected from a national pool of applicants as one of 80 metro-DC scholars for participation in the Summer Health Professions Education Program sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Sabrina will serve as a SHPEP scholar and take part in a pre-medical enrichment program involving academics, medical school application preparation, clinical shadowing, and networking opportunities from June 6 – July 16. SHPEP is regionally hosted by Howard University Hospital and Medical School. Congratulations to Sabrina on this important next step toward becoming a medical doctor! For further information and assistance applying for the summer 2022 program, have a look at the “Opportunities For Students” section of this webpage. Applications are usually due in early March for the summer session.
Great opportunity in early August to be invited back as an alumnus to the National Human Genome Research Institute’s annual Genomics Short Course teaching workshop on National Institute of Health’s (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Super chance to re-connect with staff and meet other instructors refining their teaching plans. Engaging workshops in sequencing and CRISPR-CAS9! Colleagues: plan to apply for next year’s session in mid-January 2019.
Attached are the events starting this Monday on Alexandria campus relating to job searches and career development. I will be at the Networking Event on Thursday for a brief period starting at 3pm. Please email me if you have questions about any events (eg., you are unsure what the session covers). Great programs all around, I’d highly encourage students finding time to attend as many of these as possible. We faculty members participate in these events because they are as important as in class learning to your future success!
