give a medi-futures presentation

The goal of virtual shadowing is to provide students with a glimpse into your life as a healthcare professional, sharing similar information to what you would provide to shadowing students.

Through giving a Medi-Futures presentation, you reach hundreds to thousands of students with just 50 minutes of your time.

Because virtual shadowing is meant to be a ‘bridge’ for students to pursue additional opportunities such as in-person shadowing, research, volunteering, mentorship, and more, speakers who are located near one of the Medi-Futures partner institutions are ideal, but this is not a deal-breaker. If you’re passionate about educating the next generation, we can provide a platform for you!

Who is Your Audience?
The majority of your audience will be undergraduate students, but we oftentimes have masters students, post-baccalaureate students, gap-year students, career-changers, and more. Because of the flexibility of our program, we have a diverse audience of students!

Student participants in Medi-Futures are pre-health. Some students are absolutely sure that the health career they have in mind is the one they will pursue; some students know they want to pursue some career in healthcare, but what that career might be is unclear; and some students might not even know if a health career is the path for them.

Some students may attend your presentation live via zoom, others may view the recording of your presentation at a later time – this keeps it accessible for students with varying schedules and commitments.
