In recent years, pre-medical students have trended toward taking a "gap year" between college and medical school. These future physicians represent a highly qualified and motivated, but often underutilized workforce. At Kuchnir Dermatology, a new program is redefining the gap year by offering future physicians the opportunity to join the practice for a fourteen-month commitment as a Patient Care Coordinator.

Dr. Louis Kuchnir (MIT '87 alum) and his Patient Care Coordinator, Lauren, will answer questions and share experiences in an open dialogue about day to day life in a busy dermatology clinic. There will also be the opportunity to learn more about the gap year program.
