4. EVENT: Medical School Admissions Q&A:
Admission to medical school is the single most important step in becoming a physician.  The application, interview, and admission processes are often unclear and clouded with conflicting advice from people with a wide variety of expertise and experience. With that in mind, the Honors Program has invited Dr. Paul Gulig to answer your questions about medical school admissions on Monday, October 13, from 5:00-6:00pm in the Graham Gallery.

Paul Gulig is a professor of molecular genetics and microbiology at the UF College of Medicine and served two terms on the medical admissions committee. He has had numerous UF undergraduates perform research for credit in his lab on their path to medical school, and he teaches microbiology to medical students.  
 
This presentation will cover statistics about medical admissions across the U.S. and at UF and will provide practical advice on undergraduate studies and experiences, putting together an effective application, and having a successful interview. It is aimed at being highly interactive.
