2020 - 2021 Med Prep Program

The Med Prep Program is a free, year-long program designed for pre-medical students planning to take the MCAT and/or apply to medical school. With sessions occurring one Saturday per month from October through May, it combines both MCAT and application preparation to equip students with the information and skills needed to be successful applicants.

The program is open to all students. Second and third years are highly encouraged to attend to better prepare for the application process. More details on the Practice Exam will be available soon. We very strongly recommend attending the first session to gain important information on the application process and hear important logistical information.

This year, we will be hosting this workshop via Zoom. Zoom links will be available on our Upcoming Events page as we draw closer to the event. 

Daily Agenda

9 am - 10:30 am: Application Prep
