Eligibility requirements

ACSS is for all college students interested in a career in medicine. However, this event is most beneficial for juniors, seniors and graduates who have completed all pre-requisites.

This opportunity is open to all, but it is tailored for those underrepresented in medicine or may otherwise lack access to enrichment programs that prepare them for medical school.

Program description

ACSS is a one-day symposium for students interested in pursuing medicine. Participants receive insight into the clinical side of health careers through hands-on demonstrations in basic clinical skills. Participants are able to choose three clinical sessions to attend during the afternoon portion of the symposium. ACSS participants also receive the information necessary to become competitive professional school applicants.

This year's program will be in person and commitment to full attendance is required to participate.
