Instructor: McKinnell, J
Schedule: MWF 8:00 - 8:50 AM
Linked With: CJ 130-628 Public Speaking (3 Cr)
Schedule: MWF 9:00 - 9:50 AM
We will explore the medical profession in literature and by interacting with medical students and physicians at different stages in their training and practice. What attracts us to the field? What personal characteristics may be strengths or weaknesses for a career in medicine? We will develop strategies for creating the strongest professional school application possible, including ways to schedule required pre-med courses to optimize performance. We will learn about the importance of volunteer, research and shadowing experiences and we'll work on creating a strong personal statement. We will also hear from reps from the School of Medicine's admission office and members of the admissions committee. This class is not open to students enrolled in the BA/MD program.Freshman Seminar Instructor - McKinnell, J
