This is an in-person event. Who's attending this event?
Every November, this free all-day event is a great opportunity to get the scoop from trustworthy sources on how to apply and get into medical school—and how to succeed once you get there.
We will have interactive workshops focused on crucial information for high school and college students including the Medical College Admission Test® (MCAT®), the American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®), Financial Information, Resources, Services, and Tools (FIRST), and other AAMC Services. Although not hands-on, you will still get an up-close look as our medical schools demonstrate techniques such at suturing.
This year's fair features keynote speaker Myron Laurent Rolle, MD. Sports enthusiasts and intellectuals alike know Dr. Rolle as a gifted athlete, scholar, and philanthropist. Based on his scholastic achievements, strength of character and instinctive leadership skills, Dr. Rolle was awarded the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship upon graduation from FSU in 2008, enabling him to study at Oxford University in England. Dr. Rolle postponed his National Football League (NFL) career to pursue a Master’s Degree in Medical Anthropology at Oxford. He returned to his athletic career to be selected in the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans and finished his career three years later with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Who should come? College and high school students, parents, pre-health advisors, school administrations, and other interested individuals are encouraged to attend. While the focus is on supporting individuals from diverse and underserved communities, we welcome participation of all high school and college students interested in medicine and the biomedical sciences.
