Help Our Students Travel (HOST)

HOST logo

The College of Medicine is offering a program to help our students reduce their expenses and connect with our alumni. As you may remember, residency program interviews for fourth-year students begin at the end of October, and we'd like to match our students with hosts during travel for their interviews. Alumni hosts provide students with a free place to stay as well as offer helpful advice regarding residency training and the prospective medical center and community for which they are interviewing. If you are interested in joining this program and hosting a student, please sign up and someone from our office will contact you. We'd like to thank our alumni in advance for their valuable support during this exciting time for our students.
