Are you ready to Apply? A Readiness Workshop on Applying to Medical School
Guest Speaker: Dr. Christine Crispen
This workshop is recommended for 3rd and 4th year students who plan to apply to medical school.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Christine Crispen has worked in medical education for over 10 years. She has worked in both admissions and curriculum and has a solid understanding of the admissions process as well as an overview of what the education looks like. In her admissions roles, she has been the director of admissions and is currently on the admissions committee where she reviews applications for interview selection, interviews candidates, and votes for admission. Christine has also worked extensively with post-baccalaureate students who need more academic support before they are ready to apply to medical school and has successfully helped many students gain acceptance after a well-structured plan. She thinks students who engage in early planning and advising are most successful if they follow the advising and planning. Christine has her doctorate in education, where her research focused on underrepresented medical students and the barriers faced gaining admission and throughout medical school.
