​​​​Do you work with students interested in becoming a doctor or physician assistant? Overwhelmed by the amount of information available? In this lecture, we will cover basic requirements for medical school and physician assistant programs. We will show national and institutional data to demystify misconceptions about what it takes for students to be successful in the application process. Participants will come away armed with a better understanding of the expectations of health professional schools and where you can turn for more information. Included in this session is a Q&A with health professions advisers.
