SEMINARS, EVENTS & RESOURCES:

The information below lists current events, seminars and resources that may be of particular interest for students pursuing a career in the Health Professions. To see University events and seminars happening on the Denver and Anschutz campus, please click here


The committee letter seminars for the upcoming 2019 application cycle for Medical and Dental school applicants.  It is located at the end of this message. 

The Committee Letter (also known as an Institutional Letter) is a composite letter put together by this office in support of your MD, DO or DDS application.  The purpose of these seminars is to explain this process in detail and to answer your questions.  You only need to attend ONE of these seminars, but attendance is required to obtain a committee letter.  If you COMPLETED the process last year, meaning you complete and submitted the packet and letters, you do NOT need to attend a seminar this year.  Again, attendance at one of these seminars is mandatory to get a letter from us for your application next year.  I would also like to ask that you help spread the word on this to folks you know who may be applying this upcoming cycle who may not be on this list. 

Please contact Dr. Ferguson if you have questions or concerns.
