Description

MEDS ​is ​an ​all-day ​conference ​for ​pre-med/pre-pharmacy ​students ​at ​UCSD ​and ​neighboring ​community ​colleges ​hosted ​by ​HMP3 ​(hmp3.ucsd.edu). ​ ​The ​conference ​will ​take ​place ​January ​25th, ​2014 ​at ​the ​UCSD ​School ​of ​Medicine. ​ ​More ​information ​can ​be ​found ​at ​http://meds.ucsd.edu.

MEDS ​stands ​for ​"Medical ​Education ​for ​Diverse ​Students," ​and ​is ​specifically ​designed ​to ​close ​the ​disparities ​seen ​in ​both ​medical ​education ​and ​health ​care. ​The ​health ​care ​system ​needs ​professionals ​from ​diverse ​backgrounds, ​who ​can ​identify ​with ​an ​even ​more ​diverse ​group ​of ​patients. ​

There ​will ​be ​workshops ​on ​all ​components ​of ​the ​application ​process ​— ​testing, ​writing ​personal ​statements, ​interviews, ​and ​more. ​On ​top ​of ​that, ​the ​UCSD ​Schools ​of ​Medicine ​and ​Pharmacy ​have ​invited ​conference ​attendees ​to ​participate ​in ​hands-on ​workshops ​in ​the ​brand-new ​patient ​simulation ​labs, ​just ​like ​first-year ​medical ​and ​pharmacy ​students.
