Applications Now Being Accepted For Future Docs Program

  • Tuesday, March 28, 2023

Applications are now being accepted for Future Docs, a leadership program of the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society and University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga, specifically designed for high school graduates and college students interested in pursuing a career in medicine. The deadline is April 26, 2023.

Future Docs is divided into two categories – Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine and Medical Explorations. In both programs, students are given a behind-the-scenes look at a career in medicine. The program is designed to:

· Provide students the opportunity to learn more about life as a physician and inspire them to pursue a career in medicine

· Provide students and local physicians with a community-based mentoring/teaching experience

· Assist with efforts to increase the pipeline of health care providers in Southeastern Tennessee.

“This program is a great way to educate students on the realities of medicine,” said Mark Brzezienski, MD, past president of the Medical Society and Medical Foundation. “We aim to inspire these talented young people to pursue a career in the field.”

Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine – June 13-16

The Youth Leadership Forum in Medicine is a one-week program designed to encourage rising high school seniors and 2023 high school graduates to consider careers in medicine. During the course of the week, students will learn about careers in medicine, job shadow health care professionals who practice in several areas of medicine, and enjoy hands-on learning simulations and potentially shadowing experiences.

Medical Explorations – July 17-28

Medical Explorations is designed for future professionals pursuing a career in healthcare. The two-week program offers college students or recent high school graduates the opportunity to observe physicians and gain an insight in the practice of medicine.
