2018 AMCAS Application Cycle

We are happy to announce the 2018 AMCAS application cycle will open Tuesday, May 2. Additional important dates for this cycle include submission opening which will be on Thursday, June 1, and data transmission of verified applications to medical schools, which begins on Friday, June 30.

For the 2018 cycle, the changes you will see include the addition of five new questions and the First Generation College Student Indicator. A plethora of support resources for applicants (on the AMCAS Tools and Tutorials page) and advisors (on the Prehealth Advisor Resource page) will be updated and available by Friday, April 14, including an advisor presentation on the 2018 AMCAS application.

Please note that a redesigned AMCAS application will launch later in the 2018 cycle. This change in the application interface will not impact data transmission to medical schools. The AMCAS Outreach Team will provide timely updates as they become available, and we will provide advisors and applicants ample notice and information before the new application interface launches.

As always, AMCAS staff are committed to providing the best possible experience for applicants and their advisors. We will be hosting applicant and advisor online chats in May to answer any questions you may have about the 2018 AMCAS application and will share registration information soon.

Thank you,

Swedish Epilepsy Center – summer Internship

Over the past 12 years our team at Swedish Epilepsy Center hosted multiple undergraduates interested in clinical neuroscience for a summer internship. Most commonly, the intern’s goals are straightforward- how can they satisfy pre-med school application requirements. Specifically, can they shadow a clinician for 50-100 hours or so. Our team sees it differently.

Our goal for the Epilepsy intern is to expose them to how we treat patients with epilepsy. We want to spark an interest in how complex the presentations and treatments of neurologic illness are. With that in mind, the clinical exposure is only part of the internship. We aim to have the intern work on a research project that is ethical, safe, important, and hopefully fun. Seven of our eight past interns have published their work with us in peer-reviewed Neurology journals. Many also presented their work in National meetings, and most have matriculated to either graduate medical or other STEM programs.

We are specifically looking for an undergraduate interested in neuroscience and the pursuit of a career in clinical healthcare to spend 8 weeks with us this summer learning about epilepsy. The internship has a $3500 stipend associated and the start and finish dates can vary between Mid-June to Mid-August.

Interested applicants can send their CV including GPA and a 1 page cover letter describing why they are interested in a career in neuroscience to the following email: Michael.doherty by May 1.

March, 2017

Search for "cost of higher education" and Google returns 124 million results. “How to pay for college” returns a whopping 282 million results. Determining how much your education will cost and how you’ll cover those costs is a topic on nearly every prospective student’s mind. We’ve rounded up our most popular blog posts about paying for school to aid in your research and planning.

The Big Q: How Much?


Let’s say the sticker price for your dream college is $35,000 per year — is that how much you’ll actually pay for school?! Find the answer by using this formula for calculating net price.



Debt — Is It An Inevitability?


What you need to know about “no-loan policies” that replace student loans with money that you don’t have to pay back.



Think Outside the Box.


Look beyond loans, grants and college scholarships to help pay for your health care education.



Serve and Be Served.


Interested in a career in primary care? Committing to service might be the way to go. These programs help you pay and fulfill a need.

Volunteers for ADA Camp Sealth

Are you interested in working with kids who have type 1 diabetes and learning more about diabetes management? If so, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) has a volunteer opportunity for you! Join us for ADA Camp Sealth on Vashon Island, which is taking place this year from Monday, July 31 to Saturday, August 5. The ADA camp is the only diabetes camp in the country that’s integrated into a traditional summer camp, so our campers can attend with their family and friends without diabetes! The ADA’s role is to manage all of the medical care for the campers with diabetes so they can focus on having fun at summer camp.

We have two volunteer roles for students: medical assistants and diabetes counselors. Medical assistants help campers with testing their blood sugar before meals and bedtime, treat low blood sugars, and fill in for other staff as needed. We ask that medical assistants plan to attend camp for at least three days and two nights. Diabetes counselors are assigned to a specific cabin and accompany their campers on activities throughout the week to help with diabetes management. We ask that these volunteers attend camp for the whole week.

Room and board is provided for all volunteers. No prior experience is needed, as there will be training before camp to teach you everything you need to know!

If you’re interested in volunteering at camp, please contact Kelsey Stefanik-Guizlo by June 15 at kstefanikguizlo.
