Medical Career Event for Women
November 11, 2017
The Perry Outreach Program is a free, one-day, hands-on experience at the University of Minnesota for
high school women who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine and engineering. Students will
hear from women leaders in these fields and try it for themselves by performing mock orthopaedic
surgeries and biomechanics experiments.
Women in grades 10 and up interested in exploring careers in orthopaedics or engineering are
encouraged to apply. In addition to six hands-on “mock surgical” exercises, participants will hear
lectures from local women surgeons and engineers. We are accepting online applications for this event
until the application deadline of October 11, 2017. For more information and to apply, go to this link.
