Premed Day is Oct. 26 at SMHS

Anyone interested in learning about a career as a physician or in the process of applying to medical school is invited to attend the annual Premed Day on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (UND SMHS).

Organized by the UND SMHS Student Council, this is a wonderful opportunity for college undergraduates and high school juniors and seniors who are thinking about becoming a physician. Individuals who have applied to medical school and who need more specific information on the admissions process may also attend.

The morning session consists of speakers who will introduce participants to the medical school and the UND premed and medical school curricula. Panels of medical students will discuss what medical school is like.

The afternoon session will provide an overview of the admissions process, and local physicians will talk about their lives as doctors. In addition, a mock interview session will give participants an opportunity to preview the UND medical school admissions process.

Students may attend any or all events during the day. Lunch will be provided.

Premed Day is free. However, space is limited, and reservations are required by Oct. 17. Please call the Office of Student Affairs and Admissions at 701. 777.4214. Sign-in on Premed Day begins at 9:30 a.m. outside the Reed Keller Auditorium (Room 1350) at the south end of the UND SMHS at 501 N. Columbia Road, Grand Forks.
