Events for Prospective Students

Duluth Campus Rural Pre-Med Summit

If you are considering a career in rural family medicine, the Rural Pre-Med Summit is designed to help you become a competitive applicant for medical school. During this day-long event on the Duluth campus of the Medical School, you’ll learn about the Medical School application process, from the MCAT and AMCAS to interviewing. Faculty, physicians, and current students share insights on pursuing a career in rural family medicine, and hands-on activities include obstetrics and delivery, digital otoscopes, heart sounds, and anatomy/pathology.  

The summit is intended for premedical undergraduates in their sophomore and junior years as well as nontraditional students who plan to apply to medical school in one to three years.  It is offered every other year.  The summit is free; however, space is limited and registration is required.  

The next summit is scheduled for Fall 2020.
