Committees

Committees are essential for every organization. They provide a way for members to engage with their organization all while making connections with their fellow members. Our committees are designed to foster fellowship within the membership body and provide enriching experiences for the entire organization.

 
 

Clinical Experience

This committee is responsible for finding shadowing opportunities for members and general clinical experience. Such experiences an opportunities will be available for application and are highly contested opportunities. While doing so, 

As a member of the committee, you will be closely communicating with physicians, department heads, research coordinators, and administrative assistants, so you can turn your work in the committee into a networking opportunity. We will be focusing in systemizing our approach to different departments and hospitals, and ensuring that we establish long-lasting relationships with physicians, that will benefit us as well as the future generations of SFP students.

Community Outreach Program

The Community Outreach Program (COP) focuses on addressing current health issues or concerns that affect local and global communities. We do this by identifying a key area of need in one of our communities, and then developing a year-long project geared towards alleviating the concern through education, service, or the like, thereby increasing the wellness of our communities.
