Dr. Deb Beck leads the Health Professions Advising Office at the
University of North Texas and joins us on the podcast to help
address concerns for re-applicants.
We discuss the "Four-Legged Stool" that represents the four main
areas of your application: Grades/GPA, Test Scores, Volunteer Work,
and Shadowing/Healthcare Experiences, and how to evaluate yourself
in each of these areas.
We also add a "Fifth Leg" to the stool with Communication Skills
- we want to make sure the metaphorical stool is sturdy! Dr. Beck
also shares a free resource for any applicant who does not
currently have an advisor (see the link below).
- Connect with a Volunteer Advisor The National Association of
Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP) provides a free service
to applicants who do not have an advisor.
- Volunteer advisors are available to help applicants; Dr. Beck
is currently a volunteer advisor. If you are interested in this
support service, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please indicate the undergraduate school that you are
attending, or have graduated from and when you graduated.
- In addition, please indicate which particular health profession
you are interested in, and in what State you currently reside. Your
questions will be forwarded to one of our volunteer advisors and
that individual will respond to you directly.
