Hi Everyone!


Great to see you all at the meeting on Monday! 🙂  (If you missed it, see the meeting minutes here.

At our meeting Liz Holm came to speak about funding your dental education.  She provided us with the following resources:

-National Health Service Corps scholarships:  http://nhsc.hrsa.gov/
-ADEA website. Lots of good information here, and this link offers tips for financing a dental education:  http://www.adea.org/GoDental/Money_Matters/Financing_Options.aspx
-The Explore Health Careers website has general information and also some funding tips:
-The One Stop website also offers tips on searching for scholarships, though much of this information is geared toward undergraduate students:  http://onestop.umn.edu/finances/financial_aid/scholarships/index.html
We also talked about the upcoming officer elections.  Below is some info to keep in mind:
Elections for the 2015-2016 Pre-Dental Club board will be held at our next meeting on Monday, April 27 at 6 pm in MCB 2-120. The officer positions are President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Relations, and Webmaster. If you are interested in running for an officer position(s), please email Petra at bacho008@umn.edu indicating which position(s) you will be running for. During the elections, each candidate will give a brief (5 minute max) speech introducing him/herself and indicating why he/she would be a good fit for the position. In order to be an eligible candidate, you must be a paid member of the Pre-Dental Club who has attended at least 4 Pre-Dental Club meetings/events this year, and you must be a full-time University of Minnesota student next year.
Study groups
Just a reminder that DAT study groups will continue to be held on Mondays from 6-8 pm in MCB 2-120. There are plenty of prep books that can be checked out for FREE from the Health Careers Center on the 2nd floor of Moos.

The next Pre-Dental Club meeting will be held on Monday, April 27th.
