The 16th Annual McCollough Medical Scholars Forum will be held on February 9th and 10th.

Keynote speakers are Dr. Jonathan Gavras, senior vice president and chief medical officer at Prime Therapeutics, and Dr. Matthew Might, director of the Hugh Kaul Personalized Medicine Institute at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Students will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with forum keynote speakers, invited health care professionals, faculty members, and other guests of the College, regarding humanistic and social issues in medicine. This event is for pre-health students.
