Undergraduate students and high school juniors and seniors in Cape Girardeau, Springfield, St. Joseph and Kirksville, MO, gathered in front of video monitors Tuesday evening, Feb. 19 to hear Brett Moser, A.T. Still University (ATSU) admissions counselor, share the secrets of preparing a successful application for dental school. Regional Area Health Education Center (AHEC) offices hosted nine students in Kirksville, two in Cape Girardeau, nine in Springfield, and four in St. Joseph for the ITV-mediated session.
Two more sessions are scheduled in this inaugural series. On Tuesday March 19, Jason Chrisman, ATSU admissions counselor, will present Using your college experience to enhance your application, and on April 16, Amanda Clark, admissions counselor, will help students understand the important “do’s and don’ts” of the interview process in her presentation on Professionalism and Interviewing.
The workshops are ATSU’s response to regional AHEC staff requests for presentations on these topics during a planning workshop held in Columbia, MO, in Sept. Facilitated through the Missouri AHEC network (MAHEC), the series is sponsored by ATSU’s Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health (MOSDOH) and organized by the MAHEC office at ATSU in Kirksville and regional center staff.
