M1 Orientation will be July 2018
Please review the Student Handbook [pdf] prior to Orientation day.
Photograph for Orientation
During orientation we like to get to know everyone through a photograph of their choosing. Please submit a photo that you feel represents you. It can be a photo of you, your family, your pet, your summer vacation, anything that you think is a good introduction of you to your classmates, faculty and staff. We’ll take some time at the beginning of orientation to allow everyone to introduce themselves and explain how their picture is a representation of them.
All students are required to complete Computer Based Training modules (CBT’s) annually. Please look for more information from the Admissions Coordinators on how to log in and complete trainings prior to Orientation.
You must provide their own laptop computers. Please review our computer requirements and suggestions [pdf] for the best educational experience.
Students will need to purchase their own stethoscopes prior to starting school; a small stock should be available for purchase during orientation. The only requirement is that the stethoscope must be 2-sided (bell & diaphragm). There is no need to spend hundreds of dollars on one. Consider purchasing the Littman Classic or Littman Cardiology III which usually cost $70 - $170. Anything in this price range will be sufficient.
One white coat will be provided to each member of the class. You will be measured for this at orientation. Your coat will be presented at the White Coat Ceremony. If you wish to purchase an additional coat, you may do so during orientation.

Housing & Roommates
The Office of Student Affairs has compiled a list of possible housing opportunities. It is the responsibility of the student to determine whether or not housing is appropriate for them.
We can also assist in finding a roomate by providing a spreadsheet that is distrubited weekly with contact information for other students looking for roommates. You may contact the Office of Student Affairs at any point to be added or removed from the roommate search list and for the list of housing opportunities.
