HMP3 Email Blast for Finals Week! 12.2.16
Health Beat is holding drop-ins during Finals Week! Check here for hours of availability: http://career.ucsd.edu/undergrads/interest-areas/pre-med.html#Advising.
1. Thurs. Dec. 8 Health Beat presents: Columbia University Institute of Human Nutrition One-Year Masters in Nutrition Science, 3:00-4:00 pm in the Career Services Center Horizon Room.
The one-year masters of nutrition sciences is an excellent option for students seeking a gap/glide year, or to enhance their health professions training with a master’s degree in Nutrition Science.
This program prepares students for one of several possible further directions in which advanced training may be pursued. Many MS graduates go on to train in a laboratory discipline pertinent to nutrition, enter medical or dental school, or work a public health field in which knowledge of nutrition figures significantly.
Planning to come? Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. 66@CUMC.Columbia.edu

3. IMPORTANT UPCOMING DEADLINES:
A. Teach for America: Our next deadline for training to begin in Summer 2017, for a chance to teach in the fall, is December 9th. This is also the last time that students can preference a teaching placement in California for next fall!
Here is the application website: https://www.teachforamerica.org/join-tfa/how-to-apply.
***There are 2 more deadlines in the Spring [January 27 and March 3]—but it will be too late to get a placement in California.
B. Health Career Connection Summer Internship
Students and Advisors!
4. The University of Queensland School of Medicine Ochsner Clinical School is now accepting applications for the 2018 entering class.
***Because Australia is “down under” in a different hemisphere, their medical school application timeline is the opposite of ours! They are opening their application now to attend school beginning in the Winter of 2018—our medical schools begin in the summer here.
