UT Southwestern Pre-Med Conference

Every fall, the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion sponsors a Pre-Med Conference for those interested in a career in medicine and science. The conference places special emphasis on the successful matriculation of minority pre-health profession students.

The conference provides advisors and students with information regarding admissions, financial aid, student life, and entry requirements for our schools: UT Southwestern Medical School, UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and UT Southwestern School of Health Professions. Information will be presented by faculty, staff, and current students.

Attendees will attend presentations on key information and attend workshops based on their interest in pursuing a medical degree (being a physician), a degree in the health professions (physician assistant, nutritionist, physical therapist, radiation therapy, etc.) or a biomedical research-focused graduate degree (a research career, Ph.D.). 

Major elements of the conference:

  • Information on admissions, financial aid, and careers in health care
  • Opportunity to network with students from UT Southwestern's Medical School, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and School of Health Professions
  • Presentations from UTSW's president, dean, administrators, and faculty
  • Student panels
  • Workshops
