Additional Benefits and Activities
Meetings are held monthly. Students are given opportunities to plan for excellence in their medical careers and interact with guest speakers.
Each year a dinner is hosted in the spring honoring senior, graduting EMSAP students. This fun event provides EMSAP students an opportunity to congratulate top UAB graduates.
Resources and timing permitting, EMSAP students periodically participate in the National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference.
In the past, EMSAP students have enjoyed success as members of the UAB Ethics Bowl Team, which competes on the highest academic level in intercollegiate academic competitions.
EMSAP students with good scientific skills are highly sought-after on our medical campus. Most EMSAP students participate in summer research with UAB faculty and often work on research projects during the academic year as well.
EMSAP students are assisted in finding opportunities to shadow physicians to understand the career to which they aspire. In part, such shadowing ensures that students possess a realistic understanding of their future profession and provides opportunities for learning about the doctor-patient relationship.
