Interested in a Mentorship Opportunity?
Don’t miss the chance to hear personal perspectives on the path to medical school and beyond! Come prepared with any and all questions that you have about this process. We will have a panel of physicians and alumni from biology and UIUC available to share their stories and answer your questions.
Senior, are you completing applications and preparing for interviews? You can get first hand information from a member of a medical school admissions committee! All questions are welcome and encouraged.
In addition to our information session, we are offering an EXCITING MENTORSHIP PROGRAM for 2 to 4 outstanding students in MCB or Biochemistry. The students will be chosen based on their academic record and their response to an essay question. The winning students will be invited to have dinner with some of our panel member immediately following the information session (6:15-8:30 PM). They will also have the opportunity for a mentorship experience with one of our select alumni. Past participants in the mentorship program need not apply again.
