GARY | A conference Saturday at Indiana University Northwest will address questions about the university's medical school.
The Medical School Admissions Conference at the IU School of Medicine - Northwest is geared toward high school students with aspirations of becoming a doctor and current pre-med students who are looking to apply to medical school.
For information or to RSVP, call (219) 980-6504 or visit www.iusm-nw.medicine.iu.edu.
Students and parents are invited to the conference, which will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Dunes Medical/Professional Building.
Attendees will tour campus and the medical school facilities, receive inside information about how to increase the chances of being accepted into the medical school, speak with current students about their experiences in the pre-med and medical programs and learn about the undergraduate scholarship opportunities at IUN.
At IUN, students can complete all four years of their medical school education at the same campus where they receive their undergraduate degree.
“By enabling students to complete all four years of medical school in Northwest Indiana, we expect them to have the kinds of professional experiences and relationships that will lead them to practice here and provide our citizens with skilled and compassionate medical care,” said Patrick Bankston, associate dean and director of IU School of Medicine - Northwest and dean of the College of Health and Human Services.
