AAIP Pre-Admission Workshop
The Pre-Admission Workshop (PAW) includes lectures by Native American physicians, University faculty, other health care professionals, and current medical students. This workshop addresses common challenges encountered by students in the application process and assists students with the selection of a professional school, entrance exams, e.g., MCAT, the AMCAS application and personal statements, support services, financial aid, and preparation for interviewing with admissions committees. There are also a physician/medical student discussion panel and “mock interviews” for each student participant. This Pre-Admission Workshop is hosted in a different location each year. Scholarship information to this event may be obtained by contacting AAIP or by visiting the website.

Inclusion – College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
The program’s main goal is to recruit and support students from under-represented groups in medicine, whose academic background made them a higher risk for admission in medical school, and have them complete 24 hours of intense undergraduate and graduate science courses prior to starting medical school. Accepted students receive up to $7,000 and are guaranteed admission to the CU School of Medicine if the program is successfully completed. Successful completion is defined as at least 24 hours of science, half at the graduate level, and at least a 3.5 GPA for the year (all A’s and B’s).
CU Denver School of Dental Medicine’s Post-Baccalaureate Program
The CU Denver School of Dental Medicine is excited to offer a Post-Baccalaureate
Program designed to better prepare students to be accepted into dental school and to
achieve their dream of becoming a practicing dentist. The program is a structured,
yearlong curriculum with a full academic load in the sciences. This concentration in
the sciences not only allows the student to improve his or her credentials, it also has the
potential to ease the academic stress of the first year of dental curriculum.
