Dr. Melissa Hines, Biology 2006, during the Mock Interviews last year

On Thursday, October 24, Tri Beta will be hosting Mock Interviews.  This event will consist of interviews with physicians, optometrists, and other health care professionals related to your field of interest. These interviews are intended to help you prepare for future interviews that are needed to get into graduate programs we will all be pursuing in the future. With that being said, we will need an idea of what types of professionals in their respective fields we will need to get for the event, so please contact either of the Pre-health chair members Brent McGlaughlin at bmcglaug@cbu.edu or Ryan Tomlinson at rtomlins@cbu.edu with your preference (which health care profession).  You need to sign up now in order to participate.
