What Medical Schools Are Really Looking For: How to Become a Better MD Candidate
It's no exaggeration to say that medical school admissions are as competitive as ever. The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) announced an 18% increase in applications during the 2020 admissions cycle. That's quite a leap compared to the average 3% annual increase over the last decade. Available spots in medical schools haven't kept up with this skyrocketing increase in applications. While applications increased 60% between 2002 and 2020, the number of enrolled students only increased by 35%.

What does that mean for you? It's more important than ever to understand what medical school admissions committees want from applicants. To help you maximize your chances, we're hosting a free webinar on "What Medical Schools Are Really Looking For: How to Become a Better MD Candidate."

This presentation will cover:
- Admissions Data and How Applications Are Processed
- What Admissions Officers Look for Inside and Outside the Classroom
- How to Take Your Extracurriculars to the Next Level

Chelesa Fearce, an MD/PhD candidate at the Yale School of Medicine, will host this free webinar on Tuesday, December 7th at 5pm PST/8pm EST.

Dec 7, 2021 08:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

MD/PhD Canditate @Yale School of Medicine
I am currently a third year MD/PhD candidate at Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT. I received my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry with a philosophy minor from Spelman College. While at Spelman, I served as a general and organic chemistry tutor, Vice President for the Honors Program Student Association, and swam for the TigerSharks swim program. After graduating from college magnum cum laude, with an induction to Phi Beta Kappa, I worked at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda Maryland conducting research on dopamine receptors. I am interested in receiving my PhD in chemistry and conducting drug design for psychiatric disorders. For medical training, I intend to pursue a combined Internal Medicine and Psychiatry Program.
