Medical school’s Premed Day is Oct. 23

Anyone interested in learning about a career in medicine, or in the process of applying to medical school, is invited to attend the annual Premed Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.  Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.

This day-long event is free and takes place in the Reed Keller Auditorium (Room 1350) at the south end of the UND SMHS at 501 N. Columbia Road.

Organized by the SMHS Student Council and UND Undergraduate Medical Association, the event is intended for people who are thinking about a career in medicine (including high school juniors and seniors with a serious interest in a medical career) or who have applied to medical school and need more specific information on the admissions process.

Speakers will introduce participants to the medical school, the admissions process and the UND premed and medical school curricula. Panels of medical students will discuss what medical school is like, and local physicians will talk about their lives as doctors. 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. There is no charge for attending, and lunch is provided. Pre-registration is requested but not required; please call the Office of Student Affairs and Admissions at 777-4221.
