I am soooo excited about the Student National Medical Association’s Annual Medical Education Conference being held in New Orleans from April 1-5, 2015! This will be the 3rd AMEC that I have ever attended, but it will be my first as a medical student. I am also excited to be presenting my very first workshop! The title of the workshop will be “Applying to Medical School as a Non-Traditional Student”, and I look forward to covering some of the questions I get asked most frequently through my blog, as well as offering a little encouragement and inspiration along the way. Although the focus will be on non-traditional students, the workshop will hopefully help anyone interested in applying to medical school :-)
If you’re a pre-medical student who will be attendance, I would love it if you would come and check me out. I’ll be presenting on Saturday, April 4, 2015 from 11am-12pm, but make sure you download the “AMEC 2015” app to your phones to get the exact location. I would love the chance to meet some of my awesome readers!!!!
With that being said, I have two upcoming exams on Monday and the conference shortly after that, so this will be my last post for at least another week. Leave me a quick note if you’ll be attending this year’s AMEC, and see you in New Orleans!
Good luck! You're going to do great. Have fun!ReplyDelete
Thank you! It was an awesome time :-)Delete
Btw, your comments are turned off on your blog, but congrats on your acceptance into medical school!!!!Delete
Thank you Danielle and good luck on your exam. I will be attending and can't wait to meet me you.ReplyDelete
It was so nice meeting you! Sorry we didn't get much time to chat and I hope you don't mind the picture I just posted of us. Thanks for the well wishes and best of luck to you on your journey :-)Delete
Also -- totally random question -- have you ever considered writing a book?
Thank you, it went great! I actually have considered writing a book and even started on it before school started, but decided against it. With the way financial aid is set up though, I think I might resume it this summer, lol. I'll make sure to let you know if I do!Delete
Hey awesome blog...stumbled upon it... I interviewed at GA-PCOM back in January, but was put on hold, which I'm still on...hope to get an acceptance soon... nice to see that there is a minority presence at ga-pcom, didn't see that many on interview day...i think I vaguely remember seeing you at the interviewee lunch..any who keep the post coming and good luck with everything...god willing I may get to meet you in person come fall.ReplyDelete
Keep the faith! Once you've been interviewed, acceptances can come right up until the start of classes. Just make sure you express your interest to admissions. You probably did see me at the lunch on interview day (I can't remember if I was a mentor or a runner though), and there definitely is a huge minority presence (of all types) on campus! Usually the interviews are held on days when a lot of people aren't there, so that could have been the reason why you didn't see too many. Anyway, best of luck to you and hopefully I'll see you in the fall :-)Delete
