Event List

This event is dedicated to connecting current students of the TCNJ with alumni of the school who are part of the 7-year medical program. In the past, we have connected with current medical students, residents, fellows, and well established physicians who have practiced for years. For the summer of 2020 panels were conducted online on Zoom.


Every spring, AZ hosts a formal, calling all SMEDS and the greater TCNJ campus to dress to impress! The formal is a night of dancing, fun, food, and fellowship.

Lion’s day brings families of prospective TCNJ students to campus to showcase the school’s prowess, from its academics to its clubs and organizations. AZ ensures a presence at every TCNJ Lion’s Day to learn more about the lives of current students and their alumni, as well as better understand the program expectations.

Each year, as the academic priorities on campus come to a close before winter break, AZ has a secret gift exchange with all SMEDS on campus. SMEDS spend the afternoon revealing their gifts and cracking jokes – accompanied with snacks of course!

A founding principle of AZ is fostering growth and mentorship of students across cohorts to strengthen both the program and its members. The Big/Little reveal celebrates this by connecting incoming students with a mentor of the previous class, thus establishing a lineage of mentors for everyone.

The AZ executive board takes some time every year to kick back and foster a bond within the board. The E-board uses the retreat to relax, regroup, and plan for the upcoming semester.

A core ideal of AZ is to promote medicine and inclusion to all members of the community. At our speaker events, we have an experienced, known doctor come to speak about the field and his expertise to inform the premedical community at TCNJ.

The Healthcare Hackathon will energize, inspire and teach healthcare entrepreneurship and digital strategies to scale medicine as a way to solve health problems worldwide to TCNJ students.
