One thought on “Advising and student opportunities”

  1. Would your pre-med students in your MAPS chapter be interested in a discussion over Zoom about military scholarships for medical school as well as the (tuition-free) School of Medicine at the Uniformed Services University (USU) in Maryland?

    The Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) includes a monthly living stipend, while students at USU earn a $70K annual salary.

    Background: I am reaching out to you from America’s Medical School to see if your students would be interested in finding out more about the Uniformed Services University (USU) as they consider applying to medical school. Our medical students are active duty officers in the U.S. Public Health Service, Army, Navy, and Air Force, and receive a salary and benefits as students attending our medical school. Military medicine is a rewarding career, and more information can be found on our admissions website and this detailed guide.

    After hosting a number of these info sessions, we realized that prospective med students have a lot of questions about applying to medical school in general, so we’ve been trying to focus on talking more about the process (e.g. the MCAT, clinical shadowing, research, letters of recommendation, and personal statements).

    Thanks for your time and attention!
