SKMC Virtual Information Sessions

Sidney Kimmel Medical College (SKMC) has planned a few virtual information sessions for the spring. These sessions are a great chance for prospective students to learn more about what SKMC looks for in an applicant as well as what a day in the life of an SKMC student is like. Student Recruitment Coordinators will lead a student panel and give interested applicants the chance to ask questions about SKMC or medical school in general. There will also be a presentation given by the director and dean of admissions that is more tailored to the application process.

The information sessions will be held via Zoom on the following dates and times:

  • Saturday, April 10th, 11 am-1 pm

Anyone interested can RSVP by sending an email to SKMC.infosessions@jefferson.edu with his/her/zer name, contact information, and the date he/she/ze would like to to attend.
