COVID-19 and Perry Initiative Programs

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, some locations of the Perry Outreach Programs and Medical Student Outreach Program have been cancelled in 2020 and/or 2021.
We will, of course, keep the safety of our participants, volunteers & staff at the forefront of our decisions. The national travel required for staff, as well as the regional and local travel by participants and volunteers is also a consideration, as the COVID-19 situation is different in different areas. Some locations have been cleared to resume Perry Initiative Programs in the 2021-2022 school year.
Information about our in-person programs, the Perry Outreach Program for high school students and Medical Student Outreach Program, can be found on our website. As always, scheduled programs are listed on our upcoming programs calendar.

The Perry Virtual Experience, which we began in July 2020, will continue to be offered for high school and undergraduate students. This is a free online program, with engineering & orthopaedics career discussions, as well as virtual activities for each. The PVE is conducted over Zoom video conferencing. More information on the PVE can be found here, and available sessions are listed on our upcoming events calendar.
