Meet Our Prospective Student Representatives 

Class of 2027

Our Prospective Student Representatives are current medical students who play an integral role in a variety of admissions activities and events.

Before interview day, they set up a virtual pre-interview meet and greet, where students meet with applicants the night before the interview to provide insight into their personal experiences at CU School of Medicine.

On interview day, the Pro-Reps participate in our student panel, which is a question and answer session for all applicants. Our Pro-Reps also lead Campus Tours, showing applicants lecture halls, small group sessions classrooms, hospitals and other important locations on campus.
