3.  Lincoln Memorial University offers a series of professional bridge programs.  

Hello from Lincoln Memorial University! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Lindsay Davis and I will be your Master of Science Recruiter and Student Services Coordinator for this upcoming academic year. I will soon enter my 5th year with LMU and I am excited about the opportunity to assist your students on their path to professional bridge programs. I would love if you would pass this information along to your students!

We currently have our Spring 2019 application open until December 1st, for students graduating in the Fall semester. Also, we have our Fall 2019 application open until June 15th, for students graduating in the Spring semester.

 

Students who are interested in attending medical school or veterinary school in the future typically opt to apply for the Anatomical Sciences (AS), Biomedical Professions (BP), or Veterinary Biomedical Sciences (VBIO) programs.  Each of these consists of 30 graduate hours of study, students complete the degree in a full year. 

Throughout their time in the program, students will take courses alongside first years at the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) and LMU College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM).  These classes can include courses such as Medical Gross Anatomy, Histology, Neuroanatomy, and Veterinary Anatomy I & II.  These classes are taken alongside first-year medical and vet school students. 

MS students that maintain a 3.0 GPA in the fall semester of the program are guaranteed a spring interview at LMU-DCOM or LMU-CVM. Grades of B or above in professional courses will be applied to your future transcripts at LMU-DCOM or LMU-CVM. 

 

The following undergraduate coursework is required in order to be accepted to the MS:

 

  • Biological Sciences  – 16 credit hours with labs
  • Chemistry – 16 credit hours including 8 hours of Organic Chemistry with labs
  • Physics – 8 credit hours of algebra or calculus based with labs
  • Mathematics – 6 credit hours at the College Algebra level or higher

 

Courses such as ethics and statistics are highly recommended to be completed before you begin the MS program.  If these are not completed prior to starting the program, they are then considered a deficiency course and may delay completion of the graduate program.

 

I hope this information is helpful.  If you would like to schedule a campus visit, you are more than welcome to do so.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns.  I look forward to speaking with you soon!

 

Best,

Adventures of a First-year Dental Student

While you await interview invitations, enrollment offers and final admissions decisions, it’s a great time to start thinking—and imagining! your first year of dental school. First-year dental student Chione Daniel gave us a vivid picture of her first few weeks on her journey to a dental career: “The first year of dental school actually began over the summer. We were given various assignments, such as creating a personal code of conduct, reflecting on our upcoming Gross Anatomy experience, completing a StrengthsFinder assessment and—the most ‘fun’ assignment of them all—a soap carving exercise! Unfortunately, we were not able to see our classmates’ teeth before submitting our own, so I was in for a rude awakening.” Keep reading to learn more about Chione’s early adventures in dental school.

Attention Prospective Applicants!

Now is a great time to research and secure a shadowing opportunity, volunteer position or internship for the next semester or summer. The hands-on experience garnered from shadowing (i.e., observing a practicing dental professional and gaining a sense of his or her daily routine) is tremendous! A great place to start may be your own dentist or dental hygienist. Most likely, they are familiar with you and your family and may be willing to allow you to shadow. If not, often they can recommend other practicing dental professionals from their own professional circles. Let’s get it done!

Social media is often viewed as a blessing and a curse. Thoughts, photos and videos are shared instantly and widely— friends, family and even complete strangers may see posts within seconds. Recent news has revealed the long-term effects of social media and unintended consequences—particularly for posts made in haste—for young people seeking employment or educational opportunities. Here are a few tips and reminders on developing and managing your social media profiles.

5.  The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy announces the launch of a new Pharmacists for Health Lives campaign designed to raise the profile of pharmacists and their vital roles in providing healthcare for everyone.  

AACP is pleased to announce the launch of a new Pharmacists for Healthier Lives (PfHL) campaign designed to raise the profile of pharmacists and their vital roles in providing healthcare for everyone.  We encourage advisors to share the campaign’s new "Pharmacists Wear White Coats and Many Hats" video with students.

The PfHL campaign is sponsored by a coalition of pharmacy and health care organizations and targets the general public, while the Pharmacy is Right for Me (Pharm4Me) site and social media are designed to help middle and high school students learn more about pharmacist education and careers.  Pharm4Me will amplify the PfHL campaign by adapting the content for use with students.
