Medical and dental schools require students to obtain letters of recommendation for admission, with most schools requesting a composite letter from the student’s undergraduate institution. The Medical Professions Review Board (a committee of faculty and staff members appointed by the dean of the College of Science and Mathematics) assists eligible students with this process by writing a letter of recommendation on behalf of Georgia Southern University.
There are several steps involved in obtaining the Review Board letter, and the process begins as early as freshman year. Interested students are encouraged to meet with their medical professions advisor to discuss the process and requirements as early as possible. Pharmacy, physician assistant, veterinary medicine, and optometry programs do not typically require board letters for application. However, students pursuing these programs who do wish to have a board letter are encouraged to speak with their medical professions advisor to discuss the process.
