Our Prospective Student Representatives are a current medical students who play an integral role in a variety of admissions activities and events.
Before Interview Day, they setup the Pre-Interview Day Gathering, where students meet with applicants the night before interview to provide insight into their personal experiences at CU School of Medicine. They also arrange for students hosts for applicants who request to stay with a current medical student instead of at a hotel.
On Interview Day, the Pro-Reps participate in our Student Panel, which is a question and answer session during lunch 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. Second Look Day is another event they are heavily involved in and are key to making the day a great success.
Our Prospective Student Representatives are essential to our Admissions Team.
