The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Pre-SOMA conference this year on Saturday, September 28th on their Biddeford campus in Maine. This event will run from 8 AM to 4 PM. The theme of this conference is “So you want to be a DOctor?”. UNE COM is excited to host students, advisors, and colleagues from osteopathic medical schools, and guests.
Secondaries are quickly rolling into inboxes and it’s important to submit them as early as possible to make a strong impression on med schools.
The webinar will be hosted by Chantal Lunderville, a Former Med School Application Reader & Interviewer from UCLA and an InGenius Prep counselor.
This webinar will be Q&A style! Students can submit any questions they have ahead of time to email@example.com, tweet @InGeniusPrep with the hashtag #secondariessuccess, or ask them live at the webinar.
The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) has launched the Choose DO Explorer, the Association’s first online search tool created to help prospective medical students and prehealth advisors more readily find information about admission to osteopathic medical colleges.
The Explorer provides information on school locations, dual degree options, institutional campus settings, mean overall GPA and MCAT scores for enrolled students, and application deadlines, among other relevant college details.
With 25 percent of all U.S. medical students now attending a college of osteopathic medicine, the field has become one of the fastest growing health professions in the nation. As part of the Choose DO initiative, the Explorer reflects AACOM’s commitment to promoting osteopathic medical education as a preferred pathway for future physicians and looks to increase the number of qualified physicians available to meet U.S. health care needs.
If you are in the process of applying to medical school (or thinking of applying in the future,) we have created a Google map of where Midd grads have matriculated to medical school over the last three years. The map will help you see where alumni are located. Simply click on the map pin and it will tell you what school and how many alumni matriculated that year. Keep an eye on the map as we will be adding DO, dental and veterinary schools as well.
“Preparing for dental school is a lot like driving a car, making adjustments to your speed and direction,” says predental student and Army Reserve Engineer Officer, Matthew Manly. “For example, while you’re driving your brain takes the information from your speedometer, views of the road through the windshield and mirrors, gas gauge and any light indicators (e.g., Check Engine light, etc.) to help you determine how you will get to your destination safely. While preparing for dental school, I created a spreadsheet grid to eliminate some of the ambiguity in the application process and to help me know which schools might be the best fit and offer me a higher chance of acceptance.” Read the full article by Matthew Manly here.
