Prospective Students Workshop

Is there an aspiring doctor in your family? Applying to medical school is a highly competitive, and often highly stressful, process.  We'd like to help!

As a service to our alumni, the Upstate Student Admissions Office will host a medical school admission workshop designed to help "friends" of Upstate as they prepare to apply to medical school.  The half-day interactive workshop, intended for college students and beyond, will provide an insider's view on how we evaluate applications and offer tips on preparing for interviews, as well as one-on-one constructive feedback regarding individual applicant credentials.
