April 11-12, 2024

WashU Welcome is an opportunity for accepted applicants to get to know each other as well as the WUSM chapters of SNMA and LMSA, as we discuss our efforts to promote health equity and build a diverse and inclusive community.

The WashU Welcome event will take place Thursday evening, April 11 and Friday morning, April 12, prior to Second Look, which starts Friday afternoon. During Second Look, 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.”
