UMMS graduates rank it in the top 1% for student satisfaction among all medical schools, and U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks it as one of the leading medical schools in the nation.

You may have been told that research-writing should be like “entering a scholarly conversation,” but how do you translate that metaphor into a writing process? This workshop will introduce strategies for synthesizing and building upon the ideas and information from outside sources in order to create a research-based essay that foregrounds your insights and voice. Led by Cassie Sanchez, Senior Writing Associate.
Are you thinking about attending graduate school, conducting research, or traveling abroad after you graduate? Staff from the Office of Fellowships will provide an overview of all the fellowship opportunities our office administers including many you may have heard of – the Rhodes, the Fulbright, the Watson, the Luce – and many you haven’t. We will explain the process for applying and what you can do to become a competitive applicant in the future.
