For Students By Students: Interview Prep Workshop

February 3, 2011

BRANDON, MB – On Sunday, February 6, students currently enrolled in professional programs in Winnipeg post-secondary institutions will be descending upon Brandon University to share some insights with approximately 30 undergraduates. During the day, the visiting students, some of them Brandon Univesity alumni, will help prepare the undergraduates for the interview process which they will have to undergo when they apply for admission to various biomedical professional schools, like medicine, dentistry, optometry, veterinary studies, pharmacy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, pathology assistant or graduate school.

The workshop, which is sponsored by the Office of Rural and Northern Health, is run by students who come out from Winnipeg, and is hosted by the biomedical program in the Biology Department. They will conduct mock interviews as well as share sample questions and preparation tips. This free session will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in room 3-18, Brodie Science Building.
