WashU Welcome

April 8-9, 2021

The annual Office of Diversity Programs Revisit Program gives accepted underrepresented applicants the opportunity to take another look at Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) before they make their final decision regarding medical school. Due to the pandemic, this year’s program has been renamed to WashU Welcome and will take place virtually.

WashU Welcome is an opportunity for accepted underrepresented applicants to learn more about the medical school from a student of color’s perspective. There will be opportunities to hear from School of Medicine diversity leaders, faculty of color, student leaders, and residents and fellows. You will also be able to learn more about St. Louis, talk with current students and engage with other accepted applicants.

The WashU Welcome event will take place prior to the Second Look virtual event on April 10th. During Second Look, all accepted applicants will learn about the Gateway curriculum, community engagement, as well as the various student organizations that are integral to our dynamic medical school environment. Our goal is to help accepted applicants connect with our students, our faculty and each other.

I wanted to let you know that the Second Look Weekend you all put together could not have been more thoughtfully and strategically planned to showcase Washington University St. Louis School of Medicine and the City of St. Louis. Thank you so much for hosting me this past weekend. I was amazed by the attention to me and to detail at every turn—going on rounds with Dr. Ross, touring the psychiatric wing, hearing about the research opportunities and extracurriculars that were clearly tailored to me with great thought and consideration. And, St. Louis was great– the zoo and local pub scene. Getting to know the current students, faculty, and future students reinforced for me that everyone associated with Washington University School of Medicine are my kind of folks. I had a great weekend thanks to you all.”
