NSLC Intelligence & National Security Team Advisor (TA) Opening

About the National Student Leadership Conference:

It provides skills training and hands-on experience to prepare students for the challenges of becoming a doctor.

Following training, TAs will work for 6-day sessions with a 2-day break in between. TAs work very long days and are expected to be ready to assist students at any point during the program. A typical day lasts from 9:00 AM – 10:30 PM.
