Conference Opportunity for Pre-Meds

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

I want to share some upcoming opportunities for pre-medical students. First, I am excited to be on the committee planning our 2nd annual Empower conference. I attended this conference in 2021 when I was pre-med and it was an invaluable experience. I never thought of Harvard being a place that would be welcoming and tangible for me, but attending Empower allowed me to see medical students and physicians who looked like me and who believed in me. The sessions gave me tangible tips on how to succeed in my medical school application and I left truly feeling empowered. Now, here I am as a second year student at Harvard and I'm honored to help put on this conference for URIM pre-meds.

Empower Conference

The September 9-10th virtual conference is FREE and geared toward pre-medical students who are historically underrepresented in medicine (e.g. Black, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian, Alaska and Hawaiian Natives, Pacific Islanders), LGBTQ+, and/or first-generation low-income high school through post-baccalaureate students. The conference will feature panels and talks from current Harvard Medical School students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The aim is to diversify the next generation of physicians and physician-scientists and enhance, equip, educate, and empower the future of medicine. A flyer is attached, if you are interested in sharing with your network. As attendance is limited, interested pre-medical attendees must submit a pre-registration application here by September 7th at 5 PM ET.
