Medical Education Outreach Community Program (MECO)
The MECO program is a 6-week paid experience reserved for 1st and 2nd year medical students from Chautauqua County. The program offers a unique opportunity to rotate through and explore multiple disciplines in the medical field. Medical students can make requests of specific disciplines that they would like to explore before choosing the area they may choose to specialize.

Medical Student Mixers
Twice a year CCHN and the IDS host a networking event to reach out to our local students enrolled in medical school or residency programs to allow them the opportunity to meet our physicians and hospital administrators. Students can build important connections and learn about exciting employment opportunities right here in Chautauqua County. The next mixer will be held on July 1, 2016 from 6 to 8 pm at the Shorewood County Club, 4958 W Lake Rd, Dunkirk.
