Students interested in applying for medical school or health care graduate studies should attend a talk by Dr. Jon-Paul Bingham, graduate chair of the Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
Bingham has a track record of getting students to where they should be when it comes to health care related fields, and graduate studies and can provide insights into what admissions programs look for. He also lectures in Senior Biochemistry, a topic addressed in such exams as the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) and the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
The IDEA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence Information Session is scheduled for 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 29, in D104. Students wanting to learn more about the application process to medical school, health related fields or graduate school may want to attend and ask questions.
According to talk organizers, Bingham has a reputation as someone who does not sugarcoat the important issues of scholarly preparation and expectations that students deal with in the applications process. He also provides students coaching, evaluation, and assessment in how to navigate the medical school and professional health care application process.
