What is a Perry Outreach Program?
A Perry Outreach Program is a one-day career exploration for young women in high school who are interested in careers in orthopaedic surgery, engineering or both. Participants in a Perry Outreach Program (aka POP) will complete six hands-on mock surgeries and learn directly from local medical professionals & engineers. You can see photos from our most recent POPs on our facebook page.
When/where is the next Perry Outreach Program?
We hold over 70 programs annually. You can check our upcoming program calendar, where you can filter by program type, location and date. We try to return to all locations annually, around the same time of year. You are welcome to apply to any program you are able to attend, but we are unfortunately unable to provide support for travel or lodging.
How do I attend?
The first step is to find the next program date & location that works for you. You can find those on our upcoming program calendar. Then you'll fill out the POP application form online. Keep in mind that it is a competitive application process, and deadlines are typically around 30 days before the program date. Here are some FAQ & application tips that may be helpful.
