Congratulations on having your daughter or son admitted to the SMP!
This will be an incredible year for them, hopefully one that will reinforce their motivation for medicine, and get them one huge step towards their goals. They will rapidly grow into empowered, highly focused persons, and we are honored to be part of their education and growth.
For the families of our "Physios", this year will be one where we ask you to be supportive and positive, and let your student work for their personal best in this rigorous curriculum. If you would like to visit to get a good understanding of the SMP experience, we would love to have you come to our Parent's Orientation, which will be Wednesday, August 2nd, 4-5:30PM for GUMC SMP students and Friday, August 11th from 3-4:30PM for GTDT SMP students. Both orientations will be on the GUMC campus, and we will give more information about the sessions to those parents who sign up. We will make a slide presentation available to all parents after orientation is over.
While we want your student to take responsibility for their future, you could remind them to go through the information on the Accepted Students page, as well as the information about applying to AMCAS. We want them to be fully prepared, and ready for their first course!
If you would like to come to Parents' Orientation, please register HERE.
