Houston hospital visits highlight next month’s North American Student Conference       

There is still time to make travel plans for this year’s North American Student Conference, 13-15 July in Houston, Texas. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet fellow students, graduates, faculty, and staff.

Students making the trip will tour OUM’s newly contracted clinical rotation sites in Houston and its surrounding communities. During the hospital tours, students will also meet rotation coordinators who will assist with clerkship arrangements. (See full conference agenda below.)

“There will be many great opportunities – both formal and informal – for students to meet and mingle with their colleagues, families, and faculty from all parts of the country,” says Chris Dudley, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Administration and Student Affairs. “All OUM students and graduates are invited.”

Conference attendees receive a special rate of $79 per night at the Fairfield Inn & Suites at Houston Intercontinental Airport. Special pricing begins 11 July and ends 15 July. Click here to book your room at the discounted rate. (Note: the special rate expires on 30 June.)

There is no admission charge for students coming to the conference, only a small charge for guest meals.

Whether staying at the hotel or elsewhere, attendees are urged to arrive in time for the Friday evening reception. Attendees who do not require accommodations, or those bringing guests, should touch base with Philip Sherman so he is able to keep track of conference meals and programming.

With the next North American Student Conference not taking place until 2020, attendance in July is encouraged.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Houston!
