      Truman students learn about medical careers

      Truman State University students spent Tuesday afternoon learning about careers in the medical field.

      Medical professionals spent the day on campus participating in 'Traumacare'. They interacted with the students and told them about potential career opportunities and graduate schools. Eleven different schools from across the area were in attendance at the event. The schools gave students tips about different medical programs and how to apply to them. Over fifty percent of Truman students choose to further their education after graduating.

      "It's a very targeted approach to finding schools for those students. Especially schools that recruit our students, so they can go and talk to them and get some more information and be a little bit more prepared about their next steps after graduation," said Brandi Wriedt of the Truman State Career Center.

      The students also had the chance to attend a dinner with the doctors. Also in attendance at the dinner were Truman alumni that students were able to network with.
