Advice for Prospective Students

2017 Admissions Forum Sessions

The Admissions Forum Sessions (previously known as 'Focus Groups') are informative presentations held each spring at UW in Seattle, led by the Associate Dean for Admissions, Dr. Carol Teitz. These sessions are designed for prospective first time applicants and re-applicants. The content focuses on what the University of Washington School of Medicine expects from applicants. All applicants are encouraged to attend in person or view the recorded videos prior to applying to the UW School of Medicine. The Forums cover more in-depth material than the Information Sessions listed to the right.
