What is MSAS?
The purpose of the Medical School Admissions Symposium is to give students with an interest in medicine insight into what medical schools are searching for in future medical students.
MSAS is recognized as the largest medical symposium in the state of Florida and awarded "Event of the Year" by the University of Central Florida for the 2010-2011 school year. Now, the UCF Medical School Admissions Symposium is back for its 16th straight year!
There will be breakout sessions from medical school admissions representatives as well as a tabling session for one-on-one opportunities, a distinguished keynote speaker.
A medical student Q&A panel as well as a distinguished keynote speaker are just two of the things here at the symposium that you will we give you glimpse into the medical school experience. From admission in to a university, to life as a medical student, and even what to expect when you finish medical school.
