The MEDS Conference (Medical Education for Diverse Students) is now FULL on the pre-medical side. There are still openings for the PHARMACY side of the conference, though. Having second thoughts about medicine? Curious about pharmacy? You don’t have to be settled on pharmacy as a career to sign up—why not come see what pharmacy is all about? Here is the registration link: http://regonline.com/meds2015prepharm. Registration is first-come, first-served.
Disappointed that the MEDICAL SCHOOL side of the MEDS conference is already full? You can still come! We always have a certain percentage of no-shows at the conference, so you are VERY likely to get in! Just sign up for the wait list at http://regonline.com/meds2015premed (for pre-med students). Then bring your credit card and register on the spot, beginning at 9:00 am (I recommend you come earlier than that, in case there is a line). I don’t want anyone to miss out who really wants to come! Hope this works for you.
ABOUT MEDS: Co-sponsored by HMP3/HOPE and the Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy, this is one not to miss. The conference is Saturday, Jan. 31 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Check-in is at the Telemedicine Building at the School of Medicine—then you will walk over to the School of Pharmacy for a true inside look at what pharmacy school is all about, including hands-on opportunities. Registration is $20 and includes catered breakfast, lunch, t-shirts, great swag and conference materials. You can read more about it at http://meds.ucsd.edu. For pre-pharmacy or undecided students of all class levels!
You can read more about it at the MEDS Website. For pre-med and pre-pharmacy—or undecided students of all class levels!×
Did you do well in a class that is a prerequisite for health professional school ? Would you like to help others succeed, too? Project success needs you!
Come to the orientation on Monday, Jan. 12 to learn about Project Success and how you can help. We’ll meet in the old Student Center B conference room at 6:00 pm. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know you’re coming.
Note from Adele: One of the perks—I will vouch for your service on your grad school application.×

HMP3 is co-sponsoring the Global Health Seminars for UCSD Pre-Health Students on Thurs. Jan. 22, 5:00-6:00 pm in Leichtag (the first building on your left at the med school, as you cross Gilman Drive at Library Walk). Think studying abroad for pre-health majors is impossible? It’s not! UCSD Global Seminars is offering three health-related, 5-week, faculty-led study abroad programs in Greece, Italy and Jordan this summer! Spend five weeks with a UCSD professor learning about the birth of modern medicine, behavior and neuroscience in Athens, Greece with Dr. Stephan Anagnostaras. Or explore social cognition and drugs in the beautiful small town of Parma, Italy with Dr. Jaime Pineda. Looking for hands-on clinical experience? Go to Amman, Jordan with Dr. Wael Al-Delaimy and explore public health while working with refugee populations. We look forward to seeing you at our info session!×
Write to Adele to let her know which tests you want, then come to her office during office hours to purchase yours.

Mission Statement - Welcome to HMP3! You will find the latest information about our meetings, weekly emails, board members, and more through our website. The Health and Medical Professions Preparation Program (HMP3) at UCSD serves to deliver meaningful community service experience, personal development, access to standardized test preparation, mentoring, career insight, and unique philanthropic endeavors for the benefit of the greater UCSD community.
We provide undergraduates with enriching experiences and opportunities that will enhance their preparation for admission into a professional school in the medical and other health professions. Through collaborations with the UCSD School of Medicine, faculty, community health care providers and others, HMP3 exposes members to a variety of health professions, and the experiences obtained enable students to expand their mind and increase their qualifications for entry into their health professions of interest. HMP3 also guides members to other helpful resources on-campus. HMP3 recently put on one of its biggest events, the MEDS Conference. This day long conference provided Pre-Medical and Pre-Pharmacy students the opportunity to interact with students and teachers from their respective professional schools and learn about what to expect in the future:
Many resources and opportunities are available to prepare for a variety of health professions, but where do you look for them?
