Halmos College Inducts Students into the 2018 Clinical Exploration Program


2018 Clinical Exploration Program

This January, the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography inducted the latest students to join the Clinical Exploration Program (CEP). CEP offers students the opportunity to shadow medical professionals on the job in many of NSU’s medical and health clinics. Program participants gain a broad perspective that shows how various medical fields work together and a practical, up-close review of several medical career options.

Led by CEP Program Director and associate professor Deanne Roopnarine, D.P.M., Department of Biological Sciences Chair Emily Schmitt Lavin, Ph.D., and associate professor Mark Jaffe, D.P.M., students were presented their blue coats of membership. Robert Oller, D.O., Chief Medical Advisor for the Division of Clinical Operations gave an inspirational talk about the symbolism of the white coat, and the first step into the medical professions.

Founded in 2006, CEP is free to join and voluntary.
