Colors of Medicine - Virtual
A Premed Confab in a Time of Social Distancing
Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 1pm to 3pm
We invite all premeds to UTMB's Colors of Medicine - Virtual, A Premed Confab in a Time of Social Distancing. All of us have been affected by COVID-19, but social distancing doesn't mean we still can't gather and share. We're still here working, training, educating, researching and providing patient care. We don't stop. Now, more than ever, the world is looking to doctors, nurses, and the whole spectrum of healthcare professionals to lead us forward and keep us safe. The University of Texas Medical Branch takes great pride in training future healthcare leaders. That's why it's important to connect to you, our future students.
Join the School of Medicine's (SOM) Office of Student Affairs and Admissions' (OSAA) Special Programs, Recruitment and Academic Support and Career Counseling teams as we discuss the admissions process and academic requirements, provide updates from TMDSAS and AAMC, and offer advice on becoming a more competitive applicant or re-applicant. Q&A to follow.
The Colors of Medicine medical students will be hosting a panel to discuss attending the oldest medical school in Texas, housing, finances, life on the island, their journeys into medicine, and if all they do is study. Our students are members of the Student National Medical Association, the Latin Medical Student Association and First in the Family.
