1. Welcome Back! 

I hope all of you had an enjoyable Winter Break.  I would like you to consider participating in a site visit to the New York Institute of Technology College of Technology College of Medicine, located on the campus of Arkansas State University, sometime during Spring Break Week.  My assumption is that not everyone will be going to Daytona Beach, South Padre Island, Cancun, or other sites of typical debauchery during that week, and you might want to do something constructive for your future career as a healthcare provider:

 

 

2.  Stony Brook University (Stony Brook, NY) offers BCP 405, an online course for undergraduates, which provides an opportunity to earn advanced credits. 

This course prepares the student for immediate and in our experience, highly productive clinical exposure (e. g., physician ‘shadowing’).   They also receive outstanding preparation for careers in multiple health-care-related disciplines, either here at Stony Brook or elsewhere.  Finally there are also opportunities for nonclinical graduate students (both PhD level and Master’s):

 

3.  Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine announces its Spring 2019 Osteopathic Medicine Awareness Conference (OMAC) and Open House on February 2, 2019.   

LMU-DCOM is proud to announce that we will be holding our Spring 2019 Osteopathic Medicine Awareness Conference (OMAC) & Open House on February 2nd, 2019. I have attached an invitation with a link to register for the event. Please send it out to all interested students and any relevant listservs. We would love to see a huge turnout!

Thank you all so much for your cooperation and please let me know if you have any questions about this event or anything else related to LMU-DCOM admissions.

 All the best,

Required and Recommended Coursework by Dental School

The ADEA AADSAS® Participating Dental Schools Required and Recommended Courses chart is a helpful resource for prospective dental school applicants to easily access required and recommended coursework.Traditionally, dental schools expect applicants to complete two semesters (three quarters) of biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry and physics. It’s important to know how dental schools differ on the additional classes they require, so we encourage students to thoroughly research each school they are interested in applying to for any additional prerequisites.

9.  Marginalia:  MUSICIANS WANTED for a fundraiser, tentatively scheduled for Thursday evening, March 14, 2019, to tune the LLC piano.

Let’s face it, while the LLC piano is a welcome addition to the lounge, it desperately needs a good tuning.  I am proposing a fundraiser, featuring the musicians lurking around the CBU campus, to help pay for that piano to be tuned.  If you are interested, please e-mail me at seisen@cbu.edu .
