Volunteer your time for the Rice Pre-Medical Society!

Dear Rice University Alumni Physicians,

The Rice Pre-Medical Society is an active student organization dedicated to supporting Rice’s large pre-medical student population on their path to medical school and successful careers in medicine. However, many of our programs and resources depend upon the expertise and involvement of Rice alumni physicians in the Houston area like you! Below, you will find brief descriptions of several RPMS programs seeking volunteers with your experience and enthusiasm.

Big Owls/Little Owls Program (BOP) - A mentorship program that connects a small group of Rice undergraduates with medical students and physicians. Meetings are held monthly in a casual setting, promoting discussion of medical issues and topics outside of academics, such as lifestyle, aspirations, and what it is actually like to be a medical student or physician. (Offered Fall-Spring semesters beginning September 2017)

Educational Activities - Activities are coordinated periodically throughout the school year for undergraduates to learn about and explore different aspects of a career in medicine. These unique educational opportunities include lectures, discussion panels, and hands-on experiences with physicians and medical students. Topics we plan on introducing include The Path to Medical School, A Day in the Life of a Physician, Women in Medicine, Suture Clinics, Exploring Other Health Professions, and more. (Offered Fall-Spring semesters beginning September 2017)

2018 Medical Speaker Conference - The sixth annual Medical Speaker Conference will explore the theme: the future of healthcare. If you have any unique experiences in this topic and are interested in speaking at the conference, the event offers a great opportunity to address Rice undergraduates with similar interests/concerns. (January 27, 2018)

Mock Medical School Interviews – As interviews are a critical step in the medical school application process, alumni physicians will conduct mock interviews for Rice applicants to provide useful feedback on their performance and help them become comfortable with the interviewing process. (Dates TBD–February 2018)

If you are interested in any program, please read through the attached information and fill out the survey below for us to gather your contact information, we will put you in touch with the appropriate RPMS officer.
