End-of-Conference Survey and Dismissal
Monday, September 9, 2019: Registration opens to all schools except the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor and Michigan State University. As in past years, we delay registration for these two larger campuses in order to give the students of smaller, more distant campuses earlier access.
Wednesday, September 11, 2019: Registration opens for UM-Ann Arbor and MSU students.
There is no registration fee for students.
Please note that we are asking students to sign a statement of understanding that indicates they should give a one week notice if they are registered and can no longer attend. This will allow the planning team the time needed to pull from the waitlist. The statement also indicates that the names of the students who "no show" on the day of will be provided to all seven medical schools.
