Rowe Scholar Dinners and Trips

The Professional Development Dinner Series

The dinner series is a collection of meetings that occur throughout the academic year. The intent of the series is to bring Rowe Scholars, Steering Committee members, and friends of the program together to share a meal and to learn from a special guest about a topic of the students’ choosing.

Previous dinners have included topics and guests such as health abroad with the COO of UConn Global Medical Brigades, health disparities and medication therapy management with Thomas Buckley, Assistant Clinical Professor at the UConn School of Pharmacy, and community-based participatory research with Kelley Newlin Lew, Assistant Professor at the UConn School of Nursing.

Rowe Scholar Trips

Destinations are intended to expose students to something new in the health fields, spark curiosity, and to give students the opportunity to experience health care and ask questions of professionals first hand.

Annual trips include:

  • Bridge to the Future┬áConference (required of sophomores)
  • HCOP Saturday Academy
  • Global Health and Innovation Conference (required of Rowe Scholars enrolled in UNIV 3784)

Semester trips change on a regular basis but have included the Bodies Exhibit in New York City, Boston Children’s Hospital, and the SNMA Region VII Medical Education Conference.
