Description

We are very excited to present “On the Horizon: Applying to Medical School”


Concurrent Workshops

Panel 1: From Undergrad to Medical School

A panel of six medical students who identify as underrepresented in medicine and have had successful medical school application cycles will provide their perspective on their journeys to medical school. Relevant questions addressed will include: “How early should I submit my application?”, “Who do I get letters of recommendation from?”, “How do I choose extracurriculars?”, “How do I select schools?”, “How do I survive in med school?”

Panel 2: Financing your Application Cycle for Medical School

Representatives from The Warren Alpert Medical School’s Office of Financial Aid will provide guidance on budgeting and the cost for an application cycle to medical school including: primary application, secondary application, interviews including travel and accommodation. A medical student will share their experience of financing their application cycle and budgeting during medical school.

Panel 3: Where to Start? All About the MCAT Exam

Guidance on how to prepare and study for the MCAT. Topics discussed will include student experiences dealing with: self-studying, test preparation services, and studying for the MCAT.

Panel 4: The Doctor’s First Patient: Self-Care and Wellness

Medical students and a representative from Counseling and Psychological Services will lead a mini-workshop in self-care as a medical student and how to address “imposter syndrome,” introduction to mindfulness practices, and how to maintain a wellness routine.

Optional Workshop: Walk-Through of the AMCAS Application

Students will hear from a first-year medical student and non-traditional applicant as he presents his AMCAS application and advises students on how to craft a unique and captivating story about your own passions, goals, and fit for medical school.
