Kickoff & School Fit Panel Discussion
During this first event of the 2022 Medical School Fair, the PPSC will welcome a combined panel of both premedical and medical program Deans. The conversation will prepare students for the following fair events by exploring how students should think about finding a medical school that will be right for them. Students will walk away with an understanding of how to assess their own needs, how to effectively learn about schools, and how to narrow down the list of programs they apply to.
