We encourage you to come to the one that works best for you to find out what next year will hold and how you can best position yourself to apply to Medical School in the future.  You will also have the opportunity to meet many of our PreHealth advisors.

Junior Jumpstart

Junior Jumpstart is a one-day conference, open to ALL Washington University students, that is held annually in May. The PreHealth track of Junior Jumpstart is designed to help students navigate their next steps toward successful application.

Do NOT go into the application or reapplication process without every resource that can help you be successful.  Junior Jumpstart is an efficient way to access many resources in "one-stop shopping."  If you came last year, we welcome you again.

Break into Medical School

During the Tuesday of Fall Break, join us for a day of pre-med workshops to help prepare you to apply this May/June. We will explain what to expect in the year ahead and how your prehealth advisor can help. We will also strategize about letters of recommendation and begin to examine how to develop an effective narrative for your application. Addressing these topics now will give you ample time to research schools, assess your portfolio and do some tweaking if necessary, and ultimately be in a strong position to apply at the beginning of this summer.
    
This program is designed primarily for medical school applicants because of their accelerated timeline. Other health professions programs have varying application timelines and processes. If you are prehealth but not applying to medical school, be sure to make an appointment to see a prehealth advisor for a similar check-up and strategy session!
