In partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences and the Engineering Communications Center, The Writing Center offers personal statement workshops for students applying to medical school and other professional schools in health-related fields. The workshop provides students with brainstorming strategies, insider information on the qualities of an effective personal statement, and examples of good and sub-par statements. The workshops are appropriate for juniors, seniors and post-baccalaureate students applying to MD, DO, dental, pharmacy, optometry, and physician assistant programs this year. This workshop is offered five times throughout the academic year.  Please RSVP with Susan Lowther at
