  1. Hi there! We are definitely advertising beyond this forum and are trying to capture as many individuals as possible. This is just one place we are sharing the event - partly because in our own experiences, and in those of many of our colleagues who would describe their journeys as non-traditional, many people have checked these forums for information as they applied. Thank you for the suggestion of a faculty-sponsored website specifically for this issue - we can pass that along!
  2. Unfortunately we have found in previous years that our VC connection to the other sites is poorer if we also have general video conference, so this year we will only be teleconferencing to the various locations across the province. We are very sorry that this limits accessibility!
  3. Join us! The Pre-Medicine Diversity Symposium is an annual UBC faculty-sponsored event designed to encourage people from all walks of life to apply to medical school. This event is tailored to applicants who consider themselves ‘non-traditional’ for reasons that may include having a non-science background, applying later in life, having children and family, having financial or personal hardship, or belonging to a demographic underrepresented in medicine. There will be events at all 4 sites in BC - Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria & Prince George. FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/

  5. Hi everyone, Are you interested in a career in medicine, but don't fit the traditional premed mold? Are you curious or confused about the road to applying to medical school? Do you want to hear from medical students who also come from diverse backgrounds? Then you should come to the 2017 UBC Premedical Diversity Symposium 2017! The UBC Faculty of Medicine invites people of all walks of life to apply to medical school. The Premedical Diversity Symposium is a student-organized conference designed to support applicants who identify as “non-traditional” for reasons such as a difficult finan
  6. Hi narwhale, Unfortunately there will be no Podcast... which part of the province (or country?) are you in? It is planned to run every year, so perhaps with some planning you might make it to one of the 4 sites (Kelowna will be part of it next year) for the next one. I can't speak for Admissions as to why their system is the way it is. Academics are indeed weighed heavily at UBC, which I assume means that UBC Admissions thinks strong academics are an absolutely necessary part of the package. (Whether % averages are a good measure of that is an entirely different matter, and one that
  7. One more push... The faculty is quite excited to speak to you and we all feel this is a very important event. I know it sounds like many you shouldn't come, but really, the audience we want to reach are those that are thinking of, or who have previously thought of, medical school but just need that extra push & encouragement. Medical school applications are an intimidating process, and I personally know that getting back into it after rejection is a very difficult thing to do. You do not need to fit those strict categories listed above, they are just examples. We hope to see you th

  9. Greetings Premed101, This is a message to the non-traditionals in the crowd. I am a 2nd year medical student at UBC that is working with Admissions to host a Pre-Medical Diversity Symposium. This is an event to promote diversity among the applicant pool. We hope to dispel the myth that only certain types of people are fit for medical school. The UBC Medical School welcomes applicants from all walks of life and encourages diversity in the class. Some examples of people who would benefit from this event are: - Mature applicants - Non-science background - Aboriginal background
