The first step into your medical journey

The first step into your medical journey

On Thursday, March 12, 2022, our college alumni, Ms. Sola Saleh and Ms. Marina Akleh, have attended our school to help SV students, especially those interested in Medecine, choosing between two different Lebanese systems (American and the European). A note worth mentioning is that these presentators are both current medical students at the Balamand University as well as members in a medical association, LeMSIC.

After an amicable discussion , the guest speakers started their Powerpoint presentation about the only seven universities in Lebanon that offer medical education. Secondly, they classified these colleges into two categories as follows. On the one hand, AUB,LAU,UOB and USEK use the American system, while on the other hand, LU,USJ and BAU use the European system.

Moreover , Ms. Sola and Ms. Marina explained the required steps to enroll in medical faculties and informed us about university tuitions, financial aids, scholarships and other useful information . They have also shared some of their university experiences and advices. In a nutshell, this enlightening session could be entitled as “ The First Step to Your Medical Journey”.

Last but not least, I would like to thank Ms.Sola and Ms. Marina on behalf of our classroom for taking time to be the guest speakers at our school. This conference was ,without question, inquisitive and beneficial.
