Academic Advantage Program

This year’s Academic Advantage event was a complete success!

Columbia Basin Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons hosted its annual Academic Advantage event on Saturday, March 16, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at Courtyard Columbia Point. This yearly event brings together a panel of experts that includes professionals from the medical field and representatives from university admissions departments and local nonprofits to provide students with valuable advice on how to have a successful career in the healthcare industry. Tips on how to gain admission to and be successful while attending medical school were shared and student questions were answered.

Thank you to all the students and parents who made this event so great, as well as the fantastic speakers who shared their knowledge with our community. Fantastic prizes were given out, and many local students were given a head start on their career path!
