Health Application Prep Month – April 2018

April is Health Application Prep Month!

The Career Center will be hosting two workshops on the Overview of the Health Profession Application Process and one Personal Statement Workshop, presented by the Writers Workshop (see dates/times on image below). On Sunday, April 22, we will be offering an Application Bootcamp. At the Bootcamp, the Health Professions team will go over the details of the application services, how students determine where to apply and the steps to take after they submit their applications.

These programs/workshops are best suited for students who will be applying to any type of health profession program (Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Optometry, Podiatry, SLP/AuD., Vet Med, Public Health, Nursing, Physician Assistant, etc.) for the 2018-2019 application cycle.

In the month of May, we will also be offering Application Work Groups. Students have the opportunity to sit down with a health profession advisor and ask questions about their application. Please note that this is not a personal statement review session. The work groups will take place at The Career Center Interview Suite (616 E Green St, Rm 213-between McDonalds and Subway, under the Kaplan sign) and be offered on:

May 14 from 3-5 pm
May 17 from 3-5 pm
