Health Professions Evaluation Committee 2021 Cohort Kickoff
Friday, February 21, 2020 · Noon - 1 PM
The PreMedical & PreDental Advising Office announces its Kickoff Workshops for the Health Professions Evaluation Committee's Fall 2021 Medical and Dental School Application Cohort.
All currently enrolled UMBC students who plan to participate in the UMBC Health Professions Evaluation Committee process for the application cycle for FALL 2021 entry into Dental School or Medical School (MD, DO, and MD/PhD), must attend one of the following information sessions:
Friday, February 14, 2020, 12n-1p (confirmed location BIOL 120)
Friday, February 21, 2020, 12n-1p (confirmed location ITE 102)
Kickoff Workshops are designed for students who are planning to apply to medical or dental school with the assistance of UMBC’s Health Professions Evaluation Committee (HPEC). Attending one of the Kickoff Workshops does not obligate you to apply for admission to medical or dental school in the next immediate application cycle, but the Workshops explain what students should expect during the lengthy application process, and key information to help students perform a self-evaluation of their readiness for application.
Attendance at a Kickoff Workshop is mandatory for currently enrolled students at UMBC interested in matriculating to medical or dental school during the next immediate application cycle, and is the first in a series of requirements that students must meet to qualify for the HPEC’s “Eight-Week Guarantee.”
Prior to attending a Kickoff Workshop, future applicants should review the minimum cohort requirements and the purpose of the pre-health application, or HPEC, process.
