The MAPSS CSUSB Pre-Medical and Pre-Health Conference provides community-college, university, post-bac, and high school students, parents, and counselors with the information and skills necessary to succeed in the medical and health-professions school admission process. It provides a unique opportunity for direct contact with medical school deans of admission, admission officers, financial aid officers, faculty, and staff. The 2016 Conference will be held at California State University, San Bernardino on January 16, 2016.
This event is OPEN to EVERYONE, regardless of level of school completed: high school, community college, state university, private university, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and professional level students are welcome.
Every year we host deans of admission from some of the top medical, dental, public health, pharmacy, and nursing schools across the country, as well as current students from many of these schools. Last year we added programming in the fields of veterinary medicine, optometry, physician assistant, PhD and STEM graduate studies, and physical and occupational therapy as well.
We proudly present over 100 dynamic pre-med and pre-health professions workshops — a hallmark of the conference led by deans and admission directors. The speakers and events will provide you with in-depth information on issues ranging from the medical school curriculum, admission requirements, financial aid and test preparation, to public policy and clinical and research opportunities.
Over 80 medical schools, public health schools, pharmacy schools, dental schools, nursing schools, PA schools,veterinary schools, optometry schools, and physical and occupational therapy programs are scheduled to attend this year. Moreover, physicians and representatives from many programs national wide will be present to directly answer questions during workshops and the Pre-Health Professions Fair.
