Health Professions Advising VIRTUAL Interview Workshops
We are planning two health professions interview workshops for Fall 2020. The workshops are designed for any student applying to a human (MD/DO, Pharmacy, Dentistry, PT, OT, etc) or animal (Veterinary) program. The first hour will cover basic information: types of interviews, what to wear, how to prepare, tips for virtual interviews, etc. The second half will be a practice session. While everyone is welcome, the workshops are geared to students who are applying this year. At this time, you do not need to RSVP – simply mark your calendar for the workshop you plan to attend, and we will share more details about how to access the virtual platform later in the summer.
Thursday, September 3rd | 5:00 – 7:00 pm MST
Thursday, November 12th | 5:00 – 7:00 pm MST
