Hospital Days

LECOM BRADENTON Hospital Day 2017

Monday, August 21, 2017
The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, FL
Sponsored by the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM)

An Invitation to All,

The Administration and Students at LECOM invite you to participate in the annual LECOM at Bradenton Hospital Day on Monday, August 21, 2017. We encourage interested hospitals to register early. LECOM Hospital Day is complimentary to hospital and institution representatives.

LECOM Hospital Day affords the opportunity to meet with first, second, third and fourth- year medical students from the LECOM Bradenton campus to discuss rotation opportunities at your hospitals. LECOM Hospital Days provides also a forum to interact with third and fourth-year medical students who are considering hospitals for their post graduate training.

We also extend an invitation to spouses and significant others of the medical students to participate. This may be a consideration for your hospital when providing information to future trainees who attend. Often, medical students’ decisions for rotation sites and post graduate training are based on housing, educational opportunities, and social and cultural offerings.

LECOM Hospital Days have been well attended in prior years and we anticipate the same level of enthusiasm for attending the events in 2017. We expect approximately 450 students to attend the event. All registrations should be submitted to Christine Carr via email christine.carr@lecom.edu no later than July 28, 2017. Please see Registration Form below.

We look forward to seeing many of the representatives of hospitals who have attended previously and those who will be attending for the first time.
