P-SOOP Schedule


The P-SOOP summer trip is a 3 day hike through the Catskill Mountains. Students will be divided into four groups of 8 and each group will have 2 current P&S students as their guides. Apart from directing the hike, these students will also be excellent resources from which to learn more about Columbia P&S and about life as a med student. See below for the anticipated program itinerary for our 2017 trip.



12:00pm-5:00pm - P-SOOP Check In - Bard Hall 106, P&S Club Office
