Discovery Day

Discovery Day LogoDiscovery Day is a single-site, rotation-based event showcasing several academic schools, programs, centers and departments on the Jackson campus of The University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Discovery Day is designed to expose high school (10th, 11th and 12th grade) and undergraduate students to health care and research careers and the educational programs that lead to those careers. 

Discovery Day is held in the Norman C. Nelson Student Union, located on the east side of the main campus.
