HPEC Kickoff Workshops for the Fall 2015 Cohort

Health Professions Evaluation Committee (HPEC) Kickoff Workshops for the Fall 2015 Cohort

*The deadline for first-time applicants to join the Fall 2015 Cohort is Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 4:00pm.*

Open to current UMBC Juniors, Seniors, or Alumni who plan on applying to medical, dental, or podiatry school with expected matriculation in August 2015 (starting classes at professional school in August 2015).

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 2015. Current students who are taking classes at UMBC in Fall 2013 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 is repeated in each workshop.

No need to RSVP for workshop attendance. The deadline for first-time applicants to join the Fall 2015 Cohort is Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 4:00pm.


UMBC Alumni who are First-Time Applicants to professional school:
UMBC Alumni who are not taking classes at UMBC in Fall 2013 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 2013. 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. Between January 1 and February 26, 2014, UMBC Alumni should email Ms. Roelke at Christy.Roelke@umbc.edu to express interest in joining the Fall 2015 Cohort. Please include the month and year of your UMBC graduation. All alumni must meet the minimum requirements of the cohort. The deadline for first-time applicants (current UMBC students or UMBC alumni) to join the Fall 2015 Cohort is Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 4:00pm.


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 2013. Re-Applicants should email Ms. Roelke at Christy.Roelke@umbc.edu between April 15, 2014 and May 15, 2014 to express interest in joining the Fall 2015 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 2015 Cohort.
