Annual Medical School Teleconference
Figuring out what it takes to become a successful medical school applicant is difficult to accomplish given that there is no single pathway to becoming the perfect applicant. Given that extracurricular opportunities vary at different undergraduate schools, HPA has created resources to help pre-health students navigate their undergraduate experience. The HPA Annual Medical School Teleconference was founded in order to educate UCSB pre-health students on how to become competitive medical school applicants from UCSB. This event features an opportunity to learn from a panel of UCSB alumni who are currently students at some of the top medical schools in the country. Each year, we coordinate the teleconference with a new medical school that we have not collaborated with before. Teleconferences in the past have been coordinated with UC Davis UC Irvine, and UC San Diego Schools of Medicine.
If you would like to view our most recent 2019 teleconference with UC Riverside medical students, please email for more info! The discussion was focused around how they succeed from UCSB as pre-health students, the application process, their experiences in medicine, residencies available, and much more!
The HPA Annual Medical School Teleconference was founded in Winter 2016 by Allen Navasardyan.
