O Two members developed a timeline for licensing and certification to share with students as well as a mock interview format.
Any topic(s) more valued? O GLC: Student receptive and appreciative of all topical areas, no one topic seemed to be preferred. O NCC: Most valuable topic was: 10 questions to ask a potential collaborating MD. Encouraged dialogue and stimulated further questions.

O GEORGIA: Multiple questions about interviewing: how to anticipate interview process & being prepared for behavioral interview; how to answer how one handled a difficult situation O Getting the first job O What to expect from employers as far as orientation O Opportunities to have a shadow day, O Salary negotiation O North Carolina – enjoyed the presentation on conflict
Format O GLC: Students grouped into one of four groups and then rotated through each topical session (A, B, C, D) O Each session repeated 4x to accommodate all 4 groups. O A time person was assigned to the role to announce 5 minutes before rotation time up & at time – use a bell O NCC: Square table formation with students and NCCGAPNA members interspersed. O 2 recent grads spoke about their experience (provided insight) O The 2012 event had breakout sessions for topics. O Informal. Group discussion and rotating topics. O GEORGIA: Students set the pace O A “classroom” setting structure with 4 panelists up front O A recent grad who had recently started a job also attended and sat to one side and contributed her experience. O A potential employer was also present and sat to one side and contributed that perspective too.
