First-Gen Pre-Health Workshop Series

Banner for the First-Gen Pre-Health Workshop Series

The First-Gen Pre-Health Workshop Series is designed specifically for first-gen students who are interested in health professions. The workshops and other FGWS events are open to any student who identifies as a first-generation college student who is interested in a health degree program like pharmacy, medicine, physical therapy, etc. 


As a First-Gen Pre-Health Student, here are a few other opportunities to be connected to our office during your pre-health journey. 

Action Plan + Appointment with PHSRC Staff
By using one of our Health Program Action Plans as the foundation to get your experiences organized, your can then submit your Action Plan and request a meeting with one of our staff. Fatima Omar, our PHSRC Pathways Manager who is leading up the First-Gen Pre-Health Workshop Series, is available to meet individually with students to review their Action Plan.

Virtual Drop-In Sessions
Throughout this summer and into the Fall 2020 semester, the PHSRC will be hosting virtual drop-in sessions that will take place on Zoom. There will be a few different PHSRC staff present for each session. Drop in anytime during the timeframe, stay for 2 minutes or 20 minutes, however long it takes to talk through your question(s).

Find the full schedule of Virtual Drop Sessions here, including a few specifically created for students in the President's Emerging Scholars Program, TRIO Student Support Services, and students affiliated with MCAE.
