9th National AMSA ARC/UCD Pre-Medical and Pre-Public Health Conference

The 9th National AMSA ARC/UCD Pre-Medical and Pre-Public Health Conference provides community-college and university students with the information and skills necessary to succeed in medical school admission process. It provides a unique opportunity for direct contact with medical school deans of admission, admission officers, financial aid officers, faculty and staff.

This year we will host deans of admission from some of the top medical schools across the country, medical students, and present over 105 dynamic pre-med workshops — a hallmark of the conference led by deans and admission directors. The speakers and events will provide you with in-depth information on issues ranging from the medical school curriculum, admission requirements, financial aid, and MCAT preparation, to public policy and clinical and research opportunities.

Over 85 medical schools and 20 public health schools are scheduled to attend this year. Moreover, representatives from over 250 programs will be present to directly answer questions during the Pre-Health Professional Fair.

The conference is open to students from community colleges, CSU and UC campuses, private universities and high schools; post-baccalaureate, pre-health applicants; parents of students interested in a medical profession; high-school and college academic counselors and advisors; and anyone who is interested in a career in medicine or public health.
