AVAILABILITY: THIS SEMINAR IS STILL OPEN
There are many paths to medical school, but some are much longer and far more expensive than others.
Unfortunately, most college professors and guidance counselors have never set foot in a medical school, so their advice is quite limited. Universities and the College Board are rather vague and misleading about their undergraduate admissions criteria, but medical schools and the AAMC are even more vague about their criteria. Moreover, medical school admissions and academics requires different perspectives and strategies than college admissions or other graduate school programs.
Understand the ongoing changes within the AAMC, ACGME, and medical specialty boards. Learn about important techniques & strategies that you should implement and practice (preferably years in advance) while gaining insight into how residency directors and medical school admissions committees think and pick students. Hear about the different tiers, types, and reputations of medical schools around the world. Find out the types of research that different medical schools prefer. Know how to get into an Ivy League medical school with a state university bachelors degree. Realize how some state universities actually provide better chances for medical school acceptance than top liberal arts colleges. Avoid the devastating academic, financial, and career mistakes that others make in college, medical school, and residency training.
This ECRIT Academy Success Seminar can help you discover and consider critical aspects of pre-med preparation and the medical school admissions process that you wouldn't otherwise contemplate. Find out what the AAMC and the admissions officers do not want you to know as many medical schools change their criteria and methods. Understand why top grades are often not enough to create the best medical school application. Learn what medical schools and hospitals truly need and want as the medical system changes.
Gain insight into how different types of medical schools conduct stress interviews. Obtain a method to determine which schools to avoid so that you aren't faced with the dilemma of transferring in the future. Hear about the positives and negatives of medical schools overseas. Avoid the passive, costly, and heartbreaking mistakes that others make in college, graduate school, and medical school. Discern the various scams to avoid. Last, given that medical school applications are stressful for students and families alike, ascertain ways to work collaboratively as a successful family team from suggestions in this seminar.
