For all you students interested in the medical/health professions, it would benefit you to check out the 12th Annual UC Davis Pre-Medical & Pre-Health Professions National Conference coming up October 11-12 in Davis, CA. Our own Dr. Sanders will be attending as a guest panelist and will be answering questions about her unique field of mobile aquatic veterinary medicine. We hope to see you there!
From their website:
The two-day event hosts an excellent selection of keynote speakers, Dean’s Panels, and 250 workshops covering a wide variety of health professional topics. Additional full day programs are run which focus on medicine, pharmacy, nursing, veterinary medicine, physical and occupational therapy, PhD graduate studies, optometry and public health.
Some key elements of the conference are the Pre-Health Professions Fair and the Dean’s Panels. During the fair, attendees are provided with an unparalleled opportunity to interact with school administrators from nearly all US medical schools and a wide variety of other Pre-Health Professional schools, including Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Nursing. During the course of a Dean’s Panel, medical school deans discuss their respective institutions – including admission requirements and qualities desired in prospective students – and take part in a moderated Q and A session. After this, attendees are given the opportunity to select from 250 workshops. Each session is an opportunity for attendees to explore the medical school admissions process such as crafting one’s personal statement, your specific healthcare school curriculum, summer programs, financial aid, study skills, the MCAT, NET, PCAT, DAT, GRE, career options, time management, and others. Many of the workshops are led by Deans of Admissions from the country’s premier healthcare schools, leading experts, and leaders in medicine.
