Thank you to everyone who attended our event. Stay tuned for details on our next session.
What is the Academic Advantage program at OC Oral Surgery?
The Academic Advantage program is a fantastic opportunity for young students interested in a healthcare career to gain important insight into the field. Health care is the fastest growing sector for jobs, and there are possibilities for everyone — whether you want to be a doctor, a nurse, support staff, or even a business professional.
On Saturday, March 11, OC Oral Surgery is bringing together experts in medicine, college admissions, and educational counseling to give young students a head start into the world of health care. The panel will consist of both medical and dental professionals, as well as an academic counselor, all of whom can provide valuable insight into the process of applying to colleges and completing the necessary steps to become a healthcare professional.
The Academic Advantage program aims to reach children who are between sixth and twelfth grade. If your child is in middle school or high school and interested in a healthcare profession, this program is the perfect opportunity for both you and your student. We encourage you to RSVP for our upcoming session so you can gain access to valuable information and get a head start on your child’s future (and for a chance to win a shadowing opportunity with our doctor)!
