Supporting Health Care Education
Through our Careers in Medicine Program, Summit Medical Group Foundation (SMGF) enhance what students are learning in the classroom, while helping them choose a practice specialty.
Upcoming Doctor Shortage
Did you know that by 2025, demand for doctors will exceed supply by a range of 46,000 to 90,000? To combat this growing problem, SMGF is dedicated to making careers in health care not only a viable option, but also a priority for students in the northern New Jersey area.
Unfortunately, there are few opportunities for young people in our local area to see firsthand what health care professionals actually do on a daily basis. SMGF hopes to change this by providing multiple opportunities for high school and college students to experience what it is like to be a health care professional for a day.
