BOZEMAN -- Students who hope to get into medical school will find help at a premedical conference April 12 at Montana State University.

"The conference should help college sophomores, juniors and seniors, premed advisors and post-baccalaureate students who plan to apply to medical school," says Judi Sullivan, assistant in the Montana WWAMI Clinical Education Office in Whitefish.

The conference is put on by "WWAMI," an alliance of states including Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho, that work together to provide medical education for the region. The first year of WWAMI medical school is done on a campus in each state. The second year is done at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, and the third and fourth years can be spent in various sites throughout the five states.

The conference will include information about preparing and applying to medical school, financing a medical school education, the WWAMI program, preparation for the exams that are essential for medical school acceptance, mock medical school interviews and other information.

The conference will be in MSU's Strand Union Building room 275 between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Saturday April 12. Please register by April 1 at http://tinyurl.com/2hvekv. Space is limited.
