The Office of Diversity at Columbia University, College of Physicians & Surgeons is sponsoring the 35th Annual Multicultural Recruitment Day Conference entitled “Medical School: Challenges and Opportunities.” The purpose of this annual conference is to provide underrepresented and disadvantaged premedical high school, undergraduate, and postgraduate students with pertinent information about medical school.

Through a series of workshops and a keynote address, conference participants will become informed about:
