Application Materials Online Workshops for Health Professional Students

These videos, and the corresponding workshop exercise handouts, are interdisciplinary and modeled after our Application Materials Clinics (AMC) workshops.  We highly encourage students to review these videos and handouts or attend one of our AMC workshops prior to booking a 20 minute Resume, CV or Cover Letter/Letter of Intent review appointment.  

Note: 20 minute mini appointments are brief sessions designed for quick questions and/or final edits of your application materials.  Given the appointment length, it is highly recommended that the document you bring in be in the final edit stage which will allow you to more efficiently get your questions answered in the time allotted. Mini appointments are available Monday through Friday and are the quickest way to get your materials reviewed in person or via Skype (for those located outside the Bay Area).
