Program of Study
The Pre-Medical Education Seminar at Creighton University is a three-year, five-semester program. PMED is tiered to build across each semester starting with PMED 102 in the Spring semester of the freshman year and concluding with PMED 302 in the Spring semester of the junior year. Any Creighton student interested in medical school is welcome to register for the seminar.
Key Components of the Pre-Medical Education Seminar
In addition to providing information and resources to prepare for an application to medical school, PMED also encompasses programming and advising to assist students in deciding if this is the best path for them.
Campus Letter of Endorsement
Pending the successful completion of all five semesters of the PMED program, Creighton University provides a campus letter for students to include in their medical school applications. Students holding the letter give medical schools the confidence to know that they are not only a viable candidate for their medical program but they are also truly prepared for the rigors of medical school.
PMED students are provided an online tool to track their medical school application materials with the Creighton Online Medical and Professional Application System (COMPAS) Journal. Students build their application materials through all five semesters of PMED. The COMPAS Journal is modeled after AMCAS, the national application service used by major medical schools in the country.
Mock Interviews and Workshops
Medical school interviews are a critical part of the application process. Through PMED, students learn interviewing techniques and participate in feedback-driven mock interviews to prepare for their medical school interviews.
Professional Communication Seminar
Often the first contact that medical schools have with a student is the written word. PMED provides workshops for students to develop their personal statements and resumes for their applications to medical school.
From current medical students to medical school admissions professionals and experts in the field of healthcare, PMED gives students the chance to hear from and ask questions to a host of individuals that provide insight into the application process or what to expect in and out of medical school.
Collaboration with Pre-Medical Society
The PMED program has a strong relationship with the student-run Pre-Medical Society at Creighton. From scheduling special speakers to developing programming for all students interested in a career in the medical field, the Pre-Medical Society picks up where the Pre-Medical Education Seminar leaves off.
