What is the Academic Advantage program?
The Academic Advantage program is a chance for students who are interested in a healthcare career to gain valuable insight into the field. The healthcare field is the fastest growing sector for jobs, and whether you want to be a doctor, a nurse, support staff, or even a business professional, there is a job for you.
On Saturday, December 2, MOSA Oral Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery will bring together experts in each field — medicine, college admissions, and educational counseling — to give young students a head start on how to enter the medical field. Each professional at the event was hand selected because they can provide valuable information about the process of applying to colleges and being successful as a healthcare professional.
The Academic Advantage program is aimed at children who are between sixth and twelfth grade. If your middle school or high school student is 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!
What will students learn from the program?
Our program brings together various professionals, including doctors, dentists, oral surgeons, high school counselors, and representatives from local colleges and volunteer organizations. For such a competitive industry, we want to give students a leg up on the competition and help them determine their best career path. The panel of professionals speaking at the Academic Advantage program are knowledgeable in both medicine and education. As accomplished professionals, they can help your child learn the tools they need to succeed. Those who attend the program can expect to gain insight on the following:
- The reasons a healthcare profession is rewarding
- The daily routine of a dental/medical professional
- Necessary requirements for education and training (and how to complete them)
- The college admissions process
- Tips for making a college application stand out
- How to get started
