Pre-Medical Advisement Workshops
The UNM School of Medicine Office of Admissions offers pre-med advisement to any students interested in applying to medical school.
All students interested in setting up a one-on-one advisement appointment with one of the UNM School of Medicine Office of Admissions staff persons must first attend an advisement workshop. The Office of Admissions holds monthly advisement workshops to provide students with the basic information on applying to medical school.
Please be aware that you will be required to attend a pre-med workshop before scheduling a pre-med advisement appointment with an advisor at the School of Medicine’s Office of Admissions.
Workshop attendance is not required for main campus walk-in times
For applicants who attended the Post-Application Workshop and have scheduled an individual advisement session, please complete the Self Assessment Form and the Action Plan prior to attending the advisement appointment.
You must bring the completed Action Plan with you to your advisement appointment. Please see the Example Action Plan for further reference.
