(Third and Final) HPEC Kickoff for the Fall 2014 Cohort

Health Professions Evaluation Committee (HPEC) Kickoff Workshop for the Fall 2014 Cohort



If you missed the other two Kickoff Workshops held in December, then this one's for you!



Open to current UMBC Juniors, Seniors, or Alumni who plan on applying to medical, dental, or podiatry school with expected matriculation in August 2014 (starting classes at professional school in August 2014).

The annual Kickoff Workshop dates are advertised on the NEWS section (http://www.umbc.edu/blogs/premed/) of the PreMedical and PreDental Advising Office website at the beginning of each Fall semester.


CURRENT UMBC Students who are First-Time Applicants to professional school:
MANDATORY attendance is required at one of the Kickoff Workshops for any current UMBC student who is expecting to matriculate into medical, dental, or podiatry school in Fall 2014. Current students who are taking classes at UMBC in Fall 2012 are required to attend one of the Kickoff Workshops. The definition of "Current UMBC Students who are First-Time Applicants" includes Previous Non-Completers from previous UMBC cohorts or students who previously applied to professional school but did so independently. First-Time Applicants are those students who desire to apply to medical, dental, or podiatry school with the assistance of UMBC's pre-health committee, for the first-time. All students must meet the minimum requirements of the cohort. The same content which was covered in the two workshops offered in December, will be repeated in this third workshop. No need to RSVP.


UMBC Alumni who are First-Time Applicants to professional school:
UMBC Alumni who are not taking classes at UMBC in Fall 2012 are not required to attend any of the Kickoff Workshops. Alumni are always welcome to attend a Kickoff Workshop if they desire, but attendance is not mandatory for alumni who are not taking classes at UMBC in Fall 2012. All HPEC homework assignments and other tasks are handled via email and/or a Blackboard® community, therefore an alumnus does not have to be living in the Baltimore region in order to participate in the HPEC process. UMBC Alumni should email Ms. Roelke at Christy.Roelke@umbc.edu before December 12 to express interest in joining the Fall 2014 Cohort. Please include the month and year of your UMBC graduation. All alumni must meet the minimum requirements of the cohort.


UMBC Re-Applicants:
Re-Applicants from a previous HPEC Cohort (students who already applied to medical, dental, or podiatry school with the assistance of UMBC’s HPEC) are not required to attend any of the Kickoff Workshops. Re-Applicants are always welcome to attend a Kickoff Workshop if they desire, but attendance is not mandatory for Re-Applicants who are not taking classes at UMBC in Fall 2012. Re-Applicants should email Ms. Roelke at Christy.Roelke@umbc.edu before the end of May 2013 to express interest in joining the Fall 2014 Cohort. Please include the month and year of your UMBC graduation. All Re-Applicants must meet the minimum requirements of the cohort they desire to join.


The Kickoff Workshops explain the application timeline for each professional school area. Students will also be introduced to the pre-application homework documents that must be submitted to UMBC’s Health Professions Evaluation Committee (HPEC), along with the minimum requirements to be a member of the Fall 2014 Cohort.
