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,

Dejanira

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.
