Reminder: Osteopathic Medical Schools Recruiting in Seattle downtown and at UW Seattle campus: Oct 25 & 28, 2014

The Osteopathic Schools event is happening this Saturday at the Convention Center downtown, and on Tuesday here in Mary Gates Hall. Both events are open to everyone.

We have 18 schools here to recruit Seattle area students for their medical schools and would love to have a good number of students take advantage of it!

We have some great updates to share on our upcoming Seattle, WA events at the end of October! The first 100 registered attendees are FREE! for the Pre-SOMA Meet and Greet event on Saturday, October 25, 2014! This is a terrific opportunity for meeting current medical students, networking, and gaining insider tips for shadowing, letters of recommendation, etc. Truly not to be missed!

AACOM is pleased to announce partnering with National Pre-SOMA & SOMA medical school student leaders and our Pre-Health colleagues at the University of Washington in conjunction with the AOA’s 2014 national convention in Seattle, WA October 25 & 28, 2014.

We are collaborating with our medical schools’ admission directors and medical student leaders for a Meet and Greet recruitment event on Saturday, October 25, 2014. This is an outstanding and exceptional recruitment event for aspiring pre-meds and current applicants to engage and interact with osteopathic medical student leaders and admission directors from the nation’s osteopathic medical schools. (Note: The first 100 registered attendees are FREE!!)

On Tuesday, October 28, 2014 from 6:30pm-8:30pm, University of Washington is hosting admission officers from the nation’s osteopathic medical schools. A formal presentation will be provided. Following this, advisors and pre-medical students will be able to meet one-on-one with senior level admission directors to have their questions answered! (More COMs will be participating…stay tuned.)

Please help us spread the word to your prospective students, current applicants and others interested in a medical career. Attached is the recruitment flyer on the events, along with details.
