It was great meeting some of you during UCLA’s Enormous Activities Fair! We hope you are enjoying your first week back to school!
Our first general meeting of the quarter will be this upcoming Thursday (10/5/2017) in Ackerman 2408, from 4:00 pm to 4:50 pm. This meeting, we will introduce ourselves and will give a presentation about volunteering.
For those of you who want to know more about our organization, the Pre-Medical Peer Association is a free and non-exclusive student organization dedicated to guiding pre-health undergraduates throughout their years at UCLA by offering free educational and career resources. All members receive full access to a wealth of educational benefits such as student and faculty mentorship, MCAT prep course discounts, giveaways, and opportunities for internships, volunteer, leadership, research, and clinical experience. Our club’s mission is to unify pre-medical students by promoting a forum for discussion. We present a diverse spectrum of knowledge for pre-med/pre-health students by inviting experienced guest speakers who provide extensive preparatory tools for the medical school interview and application process.
We invite guest speakers such as physicians to share their medical journeys, people from school admissions to introduce their medical schools to us, and people from MCAT prep places such as kaplan to provide us with MCAT prep courses discounts. We will provide members with resources and helpful tools to help them manage pre-medical life here at UCLA! This quarter, the main topic will be how to get started with essential things such as research, volunteering, and shadowing.
We hope to see you all there at our first meeting!
