You know, or you’ve heard, what it’s like to apply to medical school. But how much do you know about what that process looks like to the people who run that process? Here’s your chance to hear and speak with an Honors alumnus who’s on the medical school admissions committee at Georgetown. Dr. Jaffe will discuss not only practical matters you need to know about applying to medical school, but also educational and clinical trends in medical education.
Dr. Mark Jaffe attended Georgetown University School of Medicine immediately after graduating from U of M with high distinction in Psychology. He did a 4th-year elective at U M Medical School in Psychiatry before going on to residency training at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Washington Hospital Center in D.C., and Wayne State University, where he served as chief resident in dermatology in 1983. He has been in a major dermatology practice in Washington, DC, since 1987; he has published articles on dermatology and legal issues in dermatological practice. He is on the faculty of Georgetown Medical School and an active member of their admissions committee. He is also a mentor in UM’s Michigan in Washington program.
