We need your help in getting information to your students about two very important upcoming events at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University:
Igniting the Dream of Medicine Conference, February 25 – Early Registration ends February 10th
Student Educational Enrichment Summer Program (SEEP) – Application Deadline - March 1st
The daylong program, which is open to college students from across the state with a focus on groups that are underrepresented in health care education, offers an overview of the medical school admissions process, opportunities to network and hands-on experience in a state of the art simulation center, physical exam instruction, a suture clinic and more. Representatives from the Association of American Medical College will also be on hand to talk with students about the Medical College Admission Test and the American Medical College Application Services. For those college students applying to MCG, a limited number of mock interviews will also be held. New to this year’s conference is a research poster presentation that will give undergraduate students a chance to present their research to a large audience to help enhance their scientific and professional development.
More details and registration are online at http://www.augusta.edu/mcg/students/ignitingthedream.php. Early registration by Feb. 10 is $20. Late registration is $25.
Applications are also now be accepted for the Summer Educational Enrichment Program, or SEEP, which aims to diversify the health care workforce and is aimed and underrepresented students. It exposes participants to life as a “student” at MCG and the Dental College of Georgia. Participants live on the university’s health sciences campus during the seven-week program and take courses in the biomedical sciences, prepare for admissions exams, shadow health care professionals and receive networking opportunities and exposure to insightful guest speakers.
For more information or to apply for SEEP, visit http://www.augusta.edu/mcg/students/seep.php. Applications are due by March 1, 2017.
We hope you will strongly encourage students to attend the conference, which is open to any student interested in attending. The registration fee for advisors is waived for those who bringing a group of students. Additionally, please encourage research students to submit an abstract for participation in the research poster presentation at the conference.
