Sometimes you just need to add more lanes to the highway. The IAMSE Webinar Committee is excited to announce our Spring series, Widening the Road to Health Professions Education: Expanding access for diverse and underserved populations. This series will explore innovative practices in recruiting and matriculating students from underserved populations into health sciences programs and creating pathways for students to meet the unique needs of their communities. The fourth session in the series will feature Stephen Schneid of the University of California, San Diego (USA).
Academic Readiness for the Pre-clerkship Curriculum: A closer look at the metrics in pathway students
Presenter: Stephen Schneid, PhD
Session Date & Time: March 23, 2023 at 12pm Eastern
Session Description: Postbaccalaureate premedical programs provide an important pathway for students to get into medical school. As the number and percentage of medical school matriculants participating in such programs increases, it is important to take a closer look at the metrics that are supposed to inform us about academic readiness, especially for the preclerkship curriculum and licensing exams. This session will highlight the literature on postbaccalaureate premedical programs and the relationships between preadmission metrics, such as GPA and MCAT, and academic performance.
