  • Navigating the Healthcare Admissions Interview Workshop  – TBA

Admissions interviews play an important role in the med school, dental school, and other healthcare graduate program admissions process, so it is important to be prepared. During this workshop, you will learn best practices for preparing for an interview, answering different types of interview questions common in healthcare admissions interviews, and making a lasting impression on the interviewer(s). The workshop will include an overview of best practices based on research and trends in the field, some small group activities, and an opportunity for further practice via Big Interview, a virtual practice interviewing platform.

This event counts as an Honors event and is a collaboration between the Center for Career Development and the Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office.

For First and Third Year students, we have published informational workshop videos to our program website on the following page:  http://premed.uconn.edu/videoseries/
