Upperclassmen Student Panel @ Knox 20
Oct 24 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Come join us on October 24 in Knox 20 for our Upperclassman Student Panel. This new event is intended for lowerclassmen to come and learn about what upperclassmen have done throughout their time here at UB. This is a great way to learn from those that have been through the process about what classes they found helpful, which professors to look for, what activities they did to set themselves apart including shadowing, volunteering, research, etc. This is a great time to come ask questions and learn how you can set yourself apart and learn from the upperclassmen’s mistakes to make the most out of your time here at UB while pursuing your path to attending medical school.

We have recently partnered with 716 Ministries which is very similar to Habitat for Humanity.

On Saturday, 10/28, we will work at 181 Barton Street on the west side. This project will involve some minor demolition, cleaning and organizing. Depending on the weather, we may be scraping, priming, and painting a wheelchair ramp at the property.

716 Ministries will provide water, a light snack, all necessary supplies and safety gear. Check the website page under the volunteer tab in order to apply. Applications will open shortly – look for a listserv email. After you apply, all we need from volunteers are signed waiver forms and attire fit for getting a little dirty!

Featured Programs

Family Doctor for a Day

APMS is proud to announce a new shadowing program; Family Doctor for a Day.

This program works a little differently than our other programs since it will set you up with the opportunity to shadow a doctor who is a part of UB/MD Family Medicine Department. You will be scheduled for a half-day to shadow a doctor from UB/MD at one of four locations. Depending on availability and interest, the experience can be expanded. This will be between you and the physician you shadow.

After you submit this application, you will have to present copies of some information. You will be asked to submit a quick reflection paper to help the UBMD Family Medicine Department with this program. Thank you for applying and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
