On Saturday, August 16, Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM) founding dean, Paul Evans, DO will speak about, “New Directions in Medical Education,” as part of IndyTalks, a citywide effort designed to foster a sense of community through respectful and creative dialogue.
The “talk” will explore the national physician shortage, the field of osteopathic medicine, the experience of being a first-year medical student, and the practice of primary care in the 21st Century.
“Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine will graduate about 150 new Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) in 2017 and beyond. Our mission is to provide competent osteopathic physicians to practice in Indiana and the region. DOs traditionally have a high level of primary care physician graduates. We hope to provide exceptional doctors for our state to help to address the increasingly troubling physician shortages we now have,” said Dr. Evans.
The event will also include break-out sessions with students and faculty members from MU-COM and opportunities to tour the new, state-of-the-art Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences.
The event, free and open to the public, will be from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, August 16 in the Evans Center, Lecture Hall Two.
