Guess what — it is time for AMSA’s Annual Suture Clinic! Whether you are a first timer or a pro, suture practice will never hurt, especially for Med School!

Together with MAPS, we will be hosting this event on Saturday, May 18th from 2:00-5:00 p.m. This event will be free for all AMSA and MAPS members, and $5 for the general public. We will be meeting in the Health Sciences Building T-Wing, room 739. Our instructor will be none other than Dr. LeRoy Horton, DDS – owner of Affordable Dental Care and a UW School of Dentistry graduate.

Space is limited, however, so this will be a first come-first serve deal (priority to AMSA/MAPS members). We hope see all of you there! And don’t be afraid to invite your friends! Please visit our Facebook (UW AMSA Pre-Med) or our website (amsauw.com) for more information.

The University Programs team is excited to share that the 2013 application has launched for the BOLD Immersion Program for Freshmen. You can find the application at http://google.eresources.com/applications/login.asp. We’re hoping that you can share this information with Freshmen whom you think would be good for this program.

Selected freshmen will participate in an all-expense-paid program at Google’s Mountain View headquarters from July 23-27, 2013. The Building Opportunities for Leadership & Development (BOLD) Diversity Immersion Program for Freshmen is designed to provide exposure into the technology industry for students who are historically under-represented in this field. Participants will get a rare glimpse into the technology industry; non-technical career opportunities at Google; and valuable professional and peer networks. The robust program will also include tech talks, skills-building seminars and, of course, fun!

Interested freshmen students should apply now through our Scholarships & Programs site. All applicants will need to submit a general application, resume, short essay and letter of reference. The deadline to apply is Monday, April 8, 2013 at midnight PST.

Thanks for your support,

The Google University Programs Team
