Its mission is to give the students the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorsteps of these careers.

The Award of Excellence recognizes Olivia for outstanding academic performance, leadership potential, and dedication to serving humanity through the profession of medicine.

With the award comes academy rights, honors and privileges, including social networks for future doctors, mentor opportunities from physicians and medical students, leadership training, career guidance and communications for students about internships, finances and skills acquisition.
