The HMP3 Review Course Scholarship competition for spring is now open!

I have 16 scholarships to give away—12 Kaplan and 4 Princeton Review. The scholarship can be used for the MCAT, DAT, OAT, PCAT or GRE. Although grades are important, this scholarship is based primarily on need. Hint: the essay is VERY IMPORTANT.

The deadline to turn in your complete application (which includes a copy of your transcript—an unofficial one from TritonLink is fine) is Monday, May 21 at 4:30 pm. You will be notified on Friday, May 2 if you have been chosen. Good luck!

HMP3 is recruiting new board members for next year!

HMP3’s Student Board is an amazing group of individuals who work very hard to serve all of their fellow pre-health professionals. The board elects the new president and vice-president, but EVERY OTHER POSITION IS FILLED BY INTERVIEW!

We will be having a Student Board Mixer on Friday afternoon, April 25 so you can come meet the current board and see what positions you might want to apply for. I’ll send exact time and location later, but please SAVE THE DATE for this fun event! (You don’t have to attend in order to apply, but come if you can!)

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?

Weekly Emails from our Advisor, Adele Savage, provide information on:

  • Graduate school programs

  • General Body Meetings of various health professions on campus

  • Seminars on health topics

  • Mentor and shadowing opportunities

  • Volunteer, international, and research opportunities>
