All Access: Med School Admissions

Oct 25, 2019

This episode finally gets us to a medical school out West, in particular, the Pacific Northwest with Dr. Leila Harrison, the Interim Senior Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Admissions, and Recruitment.  She has an extensive background in admissions and education which really comes through in our conversation.  WSU Elson S. Floyd is a relatively new medical school (2015) which is exciting to hear how they have created a unique mission-based and community-based medical school as the second allopathic medical school in the State of Washington.  We conclude our conversation discussing how Holistic Review works in Admissions.
