Lessons/suggestions A survey was conducted at the end of the seminar. Results showed that the participants were very responsive to the information presented. They enjoyed learning about the process/schedule which medical students embark upon from the first day of med school

Comments This seminar provided a wonderful opportunity to speak to undergrads about the options that they have to pursue their dream of becoming a physician. The key to forming a connection with the pre-meds was having a presenter who was an alumni.
