The common misconception of Toppel is that only business or engineering students can benefit from it. That is far from true. Although we do have many opportunities for business students, there are tools that Pre-Medicine students can use to their advantage.

Check out the “Slice into your Career in Medicine” at 6:30PM on October 5 at Toppel to meet with doctors and health care-professionals and listen to their personal view on how the healthcare system works. It is a great chance to network with professionals already in the field and answer the questions that you have.

Come to the “Writing Your Personal Statement for Graduate School” workshop held on October 6 at 6:30PM at Toppel. It is taught by Kaplan’s representative, Anthony Colocca. You can direct questions in regards to personal statements and MCAT classes to him as well.

Medical school interviews are a source of panic and fear for many applicants. Overcome your fear by coming in for Mini-Mock Interviews. There is no need to set-up an appointment, just come in Monday 11-3PM, Tuesday 3-4:30PM, and Wednesday 11-3PM.

We also have walk-in advising hours for resume, cover letter and personal statement critiques. Stop in anytime from 10-4:30PM Monday-Thursday. A perfect resume and personal statement can make or break your application for Medical School.
If you need coaching for interviews, come into one of the many Interviewing Skills workshops. The schedule for the upcoming workshops are listed on CaneZone, under the “Events” tab and then under “Workshops” tab. We have many other workshops also listed under that same tab.

A great resource for more information for medical school, the field of medicine, or the specific job you are interested in check out Vault listed on the CaneZone homepage. Career Shift, another subscription listed on the CaneZone homepage, is also an amazing collection of information.

Know that the staff at Toppel is always willing to help. Just stop in with your question no matter how big or small. We are here for yoU!
