March 18, 2017 Ultrafest 2017 Volunteer Event! Be A Human Model For Medical Students!
We are in need of human models to be apart of Colorado
Ultrafest 2017. Ultrafest is a FREE one-day symposium for medical students
designed to provide hands on experience with point-of-care ultrasound.
This is where you come in! As models, you have an amazing
opportunity to actually teach medical students where to position the probe, how
much pressure to use when examining you, etc. You also have a unique
opportunity to learn alongside medical students about the various applications
of ultrasound in the clinical setting! This is a great opportunity to network
with current medical students and practicing physicians (MDs &DOs).
Ultrafest will be held Saturday, March 18th from 9:00am-4:00
pm. You can choose different shifts to sign up for (morning, afternoon, or
whole day), as well as different sessions to learn more about different areas
of your body. No experience in ultrasound is required to be a volunteer. There
will also be FREE lunch provided for you as a model!

March 21, 2017, Tour & Transcript Review Day at Rocky Vista University
We wanted to let you know that we have scheduled a Tour and Transcript review day at Rocky Vista University’s Colorado campus for March 21, 2017. The tour will begin promptly at 2:00 pm. However, we will be hosting one-on-one appointments with interested students for a transcript review and basic advise for applying to medical school. We do request that anyone interested in a transcript review RSVP to our Admissions email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as appointments are limited and tend to fill up very quickly (lately all spaces have been filled 2 months before the date). We planned this date to coincide with your spring break.
