Programming

We offer a full calendar of helpful programming, including presentations by local health care professionals, professional school admissions representatives, or student applicant panels, and workshops on MCAT and GRE prep, navigating the admission process, writing personal statements, interview skills, and more. Check the events page often for updates.

Personal Statement Reviews

Your personal statement or application essays will be reviewed for thematic content and feedback provided. Please schedule an appointment and email your draft to Dr. Val at least 24 hours before your appointment. Or come browse sample essays in the HPAC Resource collection and brainstorm ideas.

Mock Interviews

Mock interviews are offered to students who have interviews scheduled at health professional schools. These experiences simulate the interview experience, and you will receive specific feedback on your strengths and areas for improvement. Also, consult the excellent resources on interviewing provided through the Smith Career Center.
