Dear Members of the Classes of 2019, 2018, and ALUMNI FROM THE CLASSES OF 2017 and earlier,
The application season is underway for students planning on applying to medical school, and veterinary, dental, osteopathic, and physicians assistant school, with assistance from the Health Professions Committee for entrance in the fall of 2019.
We are available to assist you with the entire process of applying, obtaining letters of recommendation, negotiating the various web sites for registration, planning your study for the MCAT exams, developing your resume and personal statement, and interview skills.
As detailed in the Amherst Guide for Premedical Students, the Health Professions Committee will write a letter of recommendation on your behalf that will serve as a cover summary letter to your application packet. We will receive your application materials and provide an electronic application file that we will upload for distribution to the medical schools you are applying to. If a school does not use electronic distribution to receive applications, we will mail hard copy packets for you.
In order to state your intention of applying to medical, dental or veterinary school in 2018 for August 2019 matriculation through the Amherst Health Professions Committee, chaired by Prof. Loinaz, you will need to REGISTER ONLINE HERE between November 1 - December 1, 2017. It only takes a few minutes. If you are not a current student, you will need to sign in with your Amherst alumni login to register. It only takes a few minutes, but must be done to keep you on our list. We will later send an in-depth questionnaire, which will be due no later than January 1, 2018.
Please contact the Loeb Center with any questions at 413-542-2265 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dean Richard Aronson, MD, MPH, Health Professions Advisor, and Prof. Loinaz, Chair of the Health Professions Committee, and the other committee members are here to support you and we look forward to working with you.
Richard Aronson, Health Professions Advisor
William Loinaz, Health Professions Committee Chair
