Dental Admissions Event Next Week at UW Seattle

The UW American Student Dental Association (ASDA) is collaborating with the UW Delta Delta Sigma Pre-Dental club to host an admissions workshop!

With only a month until the new cycle starts, this is a great opportunity for Pre-Dental students to get some insight into the application process. There will be a short presentation from an Admissions Committee Member, a panel of current dental students, and a small group session with the panelists.

Come join us on Wednesday, May 9th at 5:30PM in Smith 407!

Summer Camp Opportunity for Pre-Health Students

Do you still need something fun to do this summer? Are you energetic, creative, and enthusiastic? Do you like working with youth and being a part of a FUN team? Are you looking to gain experience in the healthcare field or working with people with special health care needs?

If YES, then Camp Promise-West is looking for YOU!

Camp Promise-West (www.camppromise.org) is a one-week overnight camp that is provided free of charge for kids, teens, and adults with muscular dystrophy and select neuromuscular diseases. We believe all kids should get to experience the magic of camp, regardless of their medical needs or physical abilities. Our schedule is jam packed with theme days, pranks, costumes, summer fun, and activities that are 100% wheelchair accessible.

We highly valuable our volunteers that make camp possible and are looking for mature, responsible and fun individuals to join our team.

Available positions include: One-on-one counselors to provide personal care and assist with daily activities; Program staff (photographers, yearbook editors, camp newspaper, computers, science, sports, drama, music, etc.); and Medical staff (licensed nurses, doctors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, etc.)

This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who are dedicated to giving back to their community and/or who are interested in a career in the healthcare field and are looking for experience working one-on-one with individuals with special healthcare needs. Many (but not ALL!) of our volunteers are pre-health students (e.g., medicine, nursing, physician assistants, PT/OT) or interested in social work or counseling, or are graduate students/professionals in these fields.

While helpful, experience is not required as we provide all necessary training at our orientation session prior to camper arrival.

Our volunteers are 16+, come from diverse backgrounds and from all over the country, so whatever your skills may be, if you are committed to making camp the best week of our campers’ year, we’d love to hear from you!

Camp Details:

Dates: August 20-August 25, 2018 (volunteers arrive August 19th)

Location: Vaughn, WA

Requirements: Be at least 16 years old, submit an application, complete an interview, and pass background and reference checks. Please visit the requirements page of our website for more information.
