Are you concerned that the COVID-19 crisis might affect your medical school application this year? Christine Crispen, former Director of Admissions at UC Irvine School of Medicine and current member of our Pre-Med Advisory Council, co-hosted this special webinar and offered her best advice on how to deal with all the changes, as well as her predictions on what medical schools might do in response to the pandemic.

This session was part of a series of events with our Pre-Med Advisory Council. Members of the Pre-Med Advisory Council come from a variety of backgrounds, including admissions, medical education, medical school and even residency, and can offer insight into every level of the med school journey. All members of the Council, including the presenter, are available for private medical school admissions consulting.
