Community Projects

Undergraduate Advising
AOA sends medical college students to the surrounding undergraduate colleges and universities to speak with interested pre-medical students. We inform students about resumé building, the process of applying to medical school, and give an overview of "the medical school experience."

Special Olympics
Since 2008, AOA recruited medical students to volunteer at the Special Olympics held at Villanova University.

Community Medicine
This project gives Jefferson students the opportunity to go into the community and make blood pressure and diabetes screening available to the people of Philadelphia. This project will also allow Jefferson students to actively educate patients while stressing the importance of public health and improving student-patient interactions. Projects will focus on large community events such as the "Unity Fair" and sporting events.

All students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in any of the above activities.
