Interview Tips Tutorial

The Medical Student Division has prepared a small tutorial on a few interview strategies that we have found to work well when preparing for the medical school interview trail. While interviewing as well, considering using the AMWA Student Hosting Program to stay at AMWA members’ homes in the locations that you are interviewing. This will allow you to connect with AMWA members while saving some money for your celebration once you’ve gotten into medical school!

Health Scholar and Junior Health Scholar Programs, offered year-round
Not ready for the MCAT, but looking for clinical experience? COPE Health Scholars offers preparatory programs for pre-health students in high school and college. Health Scholars are college students and graduates who are pursuing careers in medicine, nursing, health administration or related fields. They gain hands-on patient care experience, becoming members of the patient care team as they assist with basic care tasks such as checking vitals, ambulating, bathing, feeding, etc. under RN supervision. Junior Health Scholars are high school students who are exploring the health professions. They are paired with Health Scholars for clinical shadowing and mentorship. All Scholars earn certificates from the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health upon completing the program. Sites are located in Southern California and Washington, and are expanding nationally.
