HPAC Personal Statement Workshop

The HPAC Personal Statement Workshop is designed to help our pre-medical and pre-dental students strengthen and develop their personal statement drafts. (Please note students should attend the Personal Statement Orientation first, write a draft, and then attend their selected workshop.) Students will need to be able to share a rough draft of their personal statement that is substantial enough to receive feedback (1/2 page, single spaced minimum) but it does not need to be full completed. RSVP is required; one RSVP per student.

Students who wish to go through HPAC evaluation in Spring 2023 must attend one HPAC Orientation, one HPAC Personal Statement Orientation, and one HPAC Personal Statement Workshop. Please be sure to sign up for one of each event, and sign in when you attend to receive credit.
