As Brandeis University announces a new FINISHER TRACK for its Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program, they are waiving the application fee for our advisees and referrals! Our career-changer and finisher track programs continue to support students who would like to take the necessary pre-requisites for allopathic and osteopathic medical schools as well as related health fields such as dentistry, veterinary medicine, physician assistant programs, optometry, or podiatry.
Our program includes three tracks:
For career changers (21-month program, fall start):
For “Finishers” (15-month program, summer start in Organic Chemistry):
THE NEW FINISHER TRACK is a special pathway for select non-science majors to complete the pre-health requirements in 15 months. These students will have already successfully completed a full year of both General Chemistry and Biology with lab and will have earned a strong GPA in these courses. Students would need to be prepared to begin with Organic Chemistry in the summer session, and would then integrate into the second-year cohort of the program on Track 1: Advanced Biology, or Track 2: Research in Project Lab.
To find out more about eligibility for this track, please contact the Program Manager Cynthia Mesh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Applications are considered on a rolling basis until the cohort is full. (Please note, June 1st is a priority deadline for fall admissions, May 1st is a priority deadline for the summer Finisher Track start in Organic Chemistry.) Your advisees and referrals will receive an application fee waiver [note from Annie: contact us if you are applying, and we will let you know how to get this waiver].
A note from Polly Allen, the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program Director at UVM:
We are busy processing applicants for the UVM Post-Baccalaureate Premedical program since out biggest review of the year comes with our March 15th deadline for summer and fall term applicants. If you have any current students or alumni interested, please encourage them to contact us or to visit our web site: www.learn.uvm.edu/premed

The Associated Medical Schools of New York (AMSNY) has a one-year Post-Baccalaureate Program (PBP) that provides its students with a stipend to attend.
However, student cannot apply to this program. It works this way: students must take the MCAT and submit their AMCAS application to one or more of AMSNY’s participating schools:
http://www.amsny.org/about/programs.html – scroll down to the middle of the page
After an admissions interview and rejection by one of the participating schools, the school must recommend that the student be invited to join PBP. AMSNY then sends an invitation letter to the student. The program is held at the University of Buffalo’s School of Medicine and Biomedical Science. If the student maintains at least a B average and complies with other requirements of the program, he is guaranteed a seat in the medical school that rejected him.
As you can see, the student has no control over the process and must demonstrate enough academic ability i.e. GPA, MCAT, etc. to be offered a med school interview at one of the above schools. In addition, once rejected, someone at the school must recommend him for the program.
Admittedly, it is a long shot, but since we just heard about it I thought we’d pass it on to you!
A pretty astounding glide/gap period opportunity!
African Leadership Academy [ http://www.africanleadershipacademy.org/ ]
is a world-class high-school-level institution based in Johannesburg, South Africa, that uses a vast network of contacts across Africa to identify the most promising 15 – 19 year old leaders on the continent. [Jihad Hajjouji '14, who just won the Davis Peace Project award, went there before coming to Midd]
Recent college graduates are invited to apply for ALA Teaching Fellowships beginning in August 2012. For two years, the ALA Teaching Fellows will live on campus and work closely with the students. Fellows participate actively in student life as coaches and faculty members in our unique curricula in leadership, entrepreneurship, and African studies. They also oversee extracurricular activities, serve as resident advisors, and teach courses in academic subjects of interest. Fellows must be fluent in English. Fluency or proficiency in other languages spoken broadly on the continent (French, Portuguese, Arabic, Swahili, Yoruba, etc.) is a plus.

MATH Pioneers: Merrimack Valley is a proposed full-time, 10.5-month urban education math tutoring fellowship in two high schools in the Merrimack Valley [west and north of Boston]. They are hiring 50 smart, idealistic, relentless people to work full-time during the 2012-2013 school year. [This is an excellent opportunity for college seniors who are interested in doing a service year before medical school. In over the course of their eight-year history, 99% of tutors who applied to law school or medical received admittance.]
Each fellow works during the school day with two students at a time for six periods a day, and works with the same 12 students every day all year long. Fellows not only will drive student achievement by providing individualized instruction, but will also build personal and meaningful relationships with urban students and their families during this pioneer year of service.
Tutors will receive full health benefits and a modest $15,000 living stipend. Housing is not provided, but they will present viable options for consideration.
This is a very selective elite program. At MATCH Boston, they receive over 20 applicants for every position and only select from the top 10%. Although tutors are required to have strong 9th and 10th grade math skills, they accept applicants from all majors.
We have a three step process:
1. Submit resume and cover letter
2. Phone Interview
3. On-site interview, math test and sample tutorial
MATCH Boston gives a two-week, 100 hour summer academy for all tutors. Tutors receive training in effective instructional strategies, school culture, behavior management, and building parent relations.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until June 25, 2012. In considering applications, they primarily look for a strong academic record, coaching or tutoring experience, and a readiness to rise to the many demands and challenges that come with working with at-risk youth. Spanish proficiency is highly valued.
Especially suitable are idealistic and driven people who are hungry for consistent feedback. They need anyone who will commit to work tirelessly for one year to erase, not narrow, the achievement gap.

compress their studies into a single calendar year
• A unique Art & Medicine program, training students in observation and diagnostic skills
• Extensive internship placements at area hospitals and local practices
• Training and paid employment as Medical Scribes
• Research opportunities with Mount Holyoke faculty and physicians at Bay State Medical Center
