Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your work at the OU College of Medicine?
I am the Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator for the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and I have worked for OU for over 10 years now. My primary role is role is to meet with college students (Pre-Med Clubs/Pre-Professional Health Clubs/Intro to Professional Health Courses) across the state of Oklahoma and provide information about the College of Medicine and our admissions process. I also meet with students individually for advisement to answer specific questions about their application to the College of Medicine. In addition, I also spend part of my time meeting with high school students to talk about medicine and promote our SPARK summer program. I will normally bring a couple of our medical students along to talk about their experiences in medicine. Recently, we also started a mentoring/tutoring program at one of the local OKC public schools which allows our students to meet with current high school students and answer questions about medicine, college, scholarships and provide tutoring help in math and science.
