10.  Tufts University offers its 2017 Adventures in Veterinary Medicine.   

 

 

Adventures in Veterinary Medicine

Dear College Advisor:

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2017 Adventures in Veterinary Medicine (AVM) program at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.

AVM is an exciting and intensive program where participants can explore the wide variety of careers available within veterinary medicine and discover first-hand what it is like to attend veterinary school.

For students who are trying to determine whether veterinary medicine is the right career path, AVM is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the profession. The program is also helpful for students who have already decided on a future in veterinary medicine, as it allows them to experience life as a veterinary student and explore opportunities within the field. Many of our past AVM participants have successfully gained admission to veterinary school both here at Tufts and at other schools.

 During the week-long session, participants will:

·         investigate the different specialty fields

·         spend time behind the scenes in our hospitals shadowing veterinary students

·         gain hands-on experience working with our teaching animals

·         learn about our admission and financial aid process

·         and more!

 We offer two sessions for college students as well as a session for adult, non-traditional students.

            Adult Session 2:         May 15

            College Session 3:      June 59

            College Session 4:      June 1216

Full details, including eligibility, tuition, and the online application, can be found on our website.

We hope that you will share this information with your students and with any other appropriate departments at your institution. If you or your students have any questions, please feel free to contact us at AVM@tufts.edu or 508-839-7962.

12.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) offers a Youth Health Equity Model of Practice Summer Program.  

Hello All,

Wanted to make you aware of a summer program (with stipend) sponsored by the HHS/Office of Minority Health for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students from underrepresented groups.

Please forward to any interested students.

We are pleased to announce that we now have a website for our Youth Health Equity Model of Practice (YHEMOP) program! 

https://www.minorityhealth.hhs.gov/YHEMOP/index.html

As many of you are aware, the purpose of the YHEMOP is to support the future design, implementation, and evaluation of federal and public health workforce policies, specifically as it relates to capacity building for diverse organizations that promote health equity and/or address health disparities. Through this initiative, Health Equity Fellows (students enrolled in higher education studies) will be matched with diverse organizations to complete short-term Health Equity Projects that help improve health outcomes and close the gap on racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care. Moving forward, the website will have up-to-date information about placement opportunities and student applications, which are available to download online.

The student application for summer 2017 fellows is currently open and the deadline for student applications is February 15th, 2017.   Applications to serve as a placement site for summer 2018 will be open in November 2017. We encourage you to share this information and link with your network and interested contacts.

Thank you,

Andrew K. Sanderson, II, MD, MPH, FASGE

Contemplating Your Future? Consider Academic Dentistry

Often academic dentistry can be an overlooked career option as students assume becoming an educator will put limits on their clinical work and experience. In actuality, an academic dental career will allow your weekly schedule to be split between providing education in the classroom and within a clinic environment while treating patients. “Faculty practices are common at most of the dental schools in the U.S. For students interested in academic dentistry, it’s refreshing to know that you can also continue to practice dentistry as a full time faculty member at almost any of the dental schools in the U.S.,” says Gary W. Lowder D.D.S. of the University of Utah School of Dentistry.

Why Do You Want to Pursue Dentistry?

Remember, the admissions process does not start when you are about to fill out an application—it really begins when you made the decision to become a dentist. Think on this as you start drafting your essay. Many applicants go through many drafts after receiving feedback from advisors and peers, so it’s good to start thinking about it early.
