2.  Do you feel yourself to be part of a marginalized community when it comes to life in general and the health professions in particular?  One of our incredibly generous HMP3 alumni wants you to know you are not alone.  Here’s his personal message: 

Thank you for your emails, they really helped me learn about opportunities while I was an undergrad.  Hope to stay in the loop.  I want to let you know that I recently finished the MD app cycle. I was very fortunate to be accepted to many great schools, including UCSF, UCLA, and UC Davis. I've decided to attend UCLA as a David Geffen scholar.  Would be happy to advise/mentor premedical students, particularly those who are LGBTQI, of color, or affected by mental illness. The premed track is quite challenging, especially for students from marginalized communities.”

Would you like to communicate with him?  Just ask and I’ll gladly send you his email, as he has so generously offered to communicate with you individually!

 

3.  I have a few more MCAT 2015 materials from the AAMC on hand for you to purchase at a discount!  They are ready to be sent to you as soon as I receive payment.  Here’s what I have:

4.  How were your midterms?  Hoping to improve your grades on your finals?  Project Success has added some more subjects and hours!  FREE TUTORING is available to you and your friends!  Courses include the prerequisites for health professions, and tutoring is provided by fellow students who did well in the class and want to help you succeed, too!

Mon. May 18  UCSD School of Medicine Night!  --What they look for in applicants, the application process and which courses and professors at UCSD you should take to help you prepare the best for medical school!    5:30-7:00 pm in the Career Services Center Horizon Room.  Co-sponsored by HMP3 and the Health Careers Advising Program.   Note from Adele:  The School of Medicine only offers this program twice a year (fall and spring)—so this is your last chance this school year to hear straight from them what they are looking for!   

Wed. May 20  Scientific Discovery & Social Responsibility This event is part of the BSS Two-Part series on scientific integrity. To register, please visit: https://scientificdiscovery.eventbrite.comFor questions, please contact: Courtney McGowan, cbmcgowan@ucsd.edu

Wed. May 20  Houman Hemmati is coming to help you navigate the AMCAS application!  You will get a hard copy of the application to take notes on while he goes through it step by step, giving insight on how to make the most of each section.  Houman is one of our most popular speakers ever, but he hasn’t been here for a few years—too busy practicing medicine!  He has his MD/PhD from UCLA and Cal IT2, and has held a variety of jobs in health care.  While a student at UCLA medical school he got to take part in the first-ever separation of twins conjoined at the head, and served on the admissions committee.  You won’t want to miss this one!  7:00-10:00 pm, Center Hall 101.  *You can wear your pajamas!*

Question for Adele:  Can freshmen and sophomores come?  Actually, I think it’s a great idea!  You will see what is expected on the application, which can help you make good choices for the rest of your years at UCSD and also encourage you to keep excellent records of your experiences so that filling out the AMCAS application will be much easier for you when your time comes.  Maybe I’ll see you there!  ~Adele

With your $20.00 donation, you will help fund one additional scholarship (for either an incoming first year or an incoming transfer student) in the amount of $2,015. The gift also funds the Class of 2015's Class Plaque that will be installed on library walk this month.

If you give the gift, you will get the chance to sign the plague and physically leave your mark on campus.

 

The Senior Class Gift helps ensure that eligible freshmen and transfer students have access to scholarships which provide the opportunity of an education for all at our world-class university, regardless of economic background.

 

As our time as undergraduates nears its conclusion, let’s look back at the good times that this campus has given us. As those who came before us helped us, let’s help those who will come after us and leave our legacy as the Class of 2015.

FOR FUTURE DOCTORS

 

1.  Medical School Enrollment to Approach 30 Percent Increase by 2019

U.S. medical schools are on target to reach a nearly 30 percent increase in enrollment by 2019, according to results of the annual Medical School Enrollment Survey released by the AAMC during the 11th annual Health Workforce Research Conference. The report shows that first-year medical school enrollment in 2019-20 will reach 21,304—a 29.2 percent increase over the baseline enrollment level in 2002-03 and only 130 positions shy of the 30 percent target the AAMC called for in 2006 to address a projected physician shortage. "With the United States facing a shortage of up to 90,000 physicians by 2025, we are pleased to see our nation's medical schools increasing enrollment, both through the expansion of existing medical schools and the establishment of new ones," said AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, MD.

HOPE ANNOUNCEMENTS

***HOPE stands for Healthcare Opportunities Preparation & Empowerment, and is intended to help underrepresented minority and/or first-generation, and/or financially disadvantaged students.  It is also open to any student who is dedicated to providing health care for the underserved***

1.  Do you feel yourself to be part of a marginalized community when it comes to life in general and the health professions in particular?  One of our incredibly generous HMP3 alumni wants you to know you are not alone.  Here’s his personal message: 

Thank you for your emails, they really helped me learn about opportunities while I was an undergrad.  Hope to stay in the loop.  I want to let you know that I recently finished the MD app cycle. I was very fortunate to be accepted to many great schools, including UCSF, UCLA, and UC Davis. I've decided to attend UCLA as a David Geffen scholar.  Would be happy to advise/mentor premedical students, particularly those who are LGBTQI, of color, or affected by mental illness. The premed track is quite challenging, especially for students from marginalized communities.”

Would you like to communicate with him?  Just ask and I’ll gladly send you his email, per his request.

3.  The Pathmaker Internship needs Spanish speakers!  NOW INTERVIEWING!  This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in serving in the health care field. With this program, interns are able to experience all aspects of a hospital by rotating to different departments every three months. Interns will get hands-on experience with patients, work side-by-side with nurses and physicians, and they can even learn about the administration side of healthcare as well. 

***Become a Spanish Medical Interpreter! The Medical Interpreter program is another opportunity to serve the Spanish speaking community and explore the healthcare field. One of the goals in this program is to provide our Spanish speaking patients with the same quality hospital experience as patients fluent in English. Interpreters mainly achieve this through successfully facilitating communication between patients and medical staff in Spanish and English. The interpreters are also trained with the skill set to work hands-on with medical staff and patients and are able to assist directly with patient care. In addition, medical interpreters are able to explore different units throughout the hospital including but not limited to: stabilized nursing units, intensive care units, emergency, rehabilitation, radiology, pharmacy, and surgery.  Currently we have a shortage of available Medical Interpreters serving at our newest facility, Palomar Medical Center.

***INTERVIEWING NOW AND INTO THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE!  Apply here:  http://www.palomarhealth.org/pathmaker-internship-program/pathmaker-internship-program-home
