UB School of Medicine Mentoring Opportunity with Honors Alums

Posted by Tim on March 4, 2019 in Academics, Community Announcements, Event, Graduate School Programs, Networking, Workshops

On March 27th at 6:00pm, there will be a medical student-run mentoring event for Honors College premedical students at the Downtown campus (Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences).

The event will be in 1225A. When you arrive at the medical campus, you will buzz in and sign in at the front desk since the entire campus is swipe access only.

This event will include a presentation from myself (Cullan) and other first-year medical students giving advice, resources, and generalized tips about the process of applying to medical school. The pre-health committee is a fantastic resource, however, our goal is to give more of an insider perspective with students who have recently gone through the process. The end will be an informal Q&A session, so be sure to bring some questions for us!

FREE PIZZA will be provided!

Click on the link below and enter your name into the google spreadsheet so we can get an accurate count of who is interested in coming. We hope to see you there!

The Goldwater Scholarship for Students Intending a PhD

Posted by Tim on August 17, 2018 in Academics, Fellowships, Graduate School Programs, Scholarship Opportunities

Are you a good candidate for the Goldwater Scholarship?  Have you been doing research and want to pursue a Ph.D.?

Anne Fortman travelled to Fermi National Accelerator to conduct research and CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland, she is now at Harvard pursuing a Ph.D.  Walker Gosrich completed an REU at the Oregon State University and is headed to Penn for his Ph.D. Andrew Stewart did summer research at Mount Sinai Health Systems researching pharmacotherapeutic approaches to addiction.  He starts there this fall in a Ph.D.

Anne, Walker and Andrew all have a few things in common.  They find answering important questions through the use of research challenging and fascinating; they all are pursuing a Ph.D.; and they were all recently recognized by the Goldwater Foundation.  http://www.buffalo.edu/news/releases/2017/04/031.html

Does this sound like you?  UB is seeking individuals (sophomores and juniors) with high GPA’s and research experience, who want to pursue a Ph.D. to apply for the 2019 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.

If you are interested in applying, please contact me so that we can discuss the application and selection process.
