On Saturday November 4th, UCSD medical students are inviting Preuss students to get involved in the medical field, specifically what it’s like to be a doctor. The conference will be located in the Biomedical Science building. This event, often referred to as “Doc-4-A-Day,” is limited to only 20 students and will begin at 8:00 a.m and end at 3:00 p.m.

“What made me interested in attending this event was the title ‘Doc-4-a-Day.’ Having the opportunity to be a doctor called my attention, as I will be able to experience parts of how it is to be a doctor,” stated Klarissa Valdez (‘25).

This event will allow both middle school and high school students to attend as long as they are part of a low performing school in San Diego. It will give an early opportunity to get involved in different careers and it’s especially welcoming to students at Preuss due to its familiarity and close range.

“I am planning to major in business economics but I wanted to have an open mindset on other possible majors, and the medical field seems interesting,” expressed Jenny Sanchez (‘25).

Throughout this trip to UCSD, students will engage in Gastrointestinal (stomachs and intestines) lessons, Cardiology lessons (medicine and disease), and finally a first aid lesson. They will also receive breakfast and lunch. Their schedule will be very packed, but the event itself will provide new information about the campus and a possible career path.

“I have already been to the UCSD campus multiple times, and I am grateful for all the opportunities I can take. I look forward to learning more about being a doctor because it will help solidify my interests in becoming a doctor,” mentioned Kathy Tran (‘25).
