Arizona Applicant Academy

The Arizona Applicant Academy is an intensive one day seminar for pre-med college students who are ready to apply to medical school. Items covered in the seminar include developing a personal statement, working on interview strategies, and managing secondary applications. This seminar is very hands-on and focused. Ideally, participants should be ready to apply to medical school in the year they attend Applicant Academy.

Who should attend? “First-time applicants” or “re-applicants” to medical school.

This workshop is especially geared to meeting the needs of students who are characterized by one or more of the following:

First in their family to graduate from a 4-year college or university
From a rural community
From a U.S./Mexico border community
Educationally or economically disadvantaged

The program is offered at the University of Arizona (UA) College of Medicine — Tucson campus. Non-UA students are welcome to apply and attend if selected. Arizona Applicant Academy is offered once a year, usually late in the Spring semester.

The 2017 AZ Applicant Academy will be held Saturday May 20, 2017. The application will be open April 1-23. Decisions will be made no later than April 25.

Mock Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI)

The University of Arizona College of Medicine Offices of Admissions and Diversity and Inclusion offer Mock Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) workshop for pre-health students who are currently applying to medical school.

The Mock MMI is a one-day experience designed to educate and inform pre-health college students of the interview process through 1) presentation of materials and a panel discussion, and 2) simulating the ‘interview’ that most medical schools require as part of their admission process. After participating in the workshop, students will receive written feedback and helpful advice from volunteer interviewers.

The Mock MMI workshop is offered in the month of August, prior to medical school admissions interview. We encourage pre-health students planning to apply to medical school for the current application cycle to participate in the Mock MMI.

The 2017 Mock MMI Workshop will be held August 19, 2017. Applications open June 6th and close June 30th at 5:00pm. Students will be notified of their acceptance on August 1, 2017.
