Small Group Premed/Pre-Health Q&A Sessions
Weekly L&S Small Group Premed/Pre-Health Q&A Sessions take place every Wednesday afternoon from 4 to 5pm in Evans 236. These sessions provide a time for students to ask general premed/pre-health questions in a group setting. All students are welcome to attend, but these sessions are particularly geared toward freshmen and sophomore premedical students. Students can come and go as they please from these sessions at any time during the hour.
If you come in for a Wednesday premed drop-in slot, and there are no more spots available, the Small Group Q&A from 4 to 5pm allows for a different way to access advisers. These weekly sessions are offered throughout fall and spring semesters.
