AlexandraV Posted February 20, 2012 Share Posted February 20, 2012 Hi, I have a few questions, and I hope anyone here might be able to help me out. First of all, we are a military family with a toddler and will be relocating to Ft. Campbell in 2013 (we'd move around halfway between the base and school). We're currently stationed overseas, so I still have some time to improve my resume and would like some feedback on what might work best to increase my chances at Trevecca. My background: 1. B.S. in Biology - GPA 4.0 2. Three years of med school in Germany from 2004 - 2007 (dropped out when I married and we had to relocate). GPA 3.8 with pre-med and some clinical classes 3. Three months internship at geriatric and surgical wards at a German hospital: 480 hours patient contact, mostly CNA duties 4. Worked as a freelance medical translator for four years which gave me exposure to current research topics 5. Volunteering at a military hospital, greeting and directing patients and maintaining records and coordinating care with local host nation providers 7. I cared for my grandmother at home for six years (stroke and diabetes) 6. GRE - 1280 I know I am lacking a bit in practical experience. Opportunities for direct patient contact here are very limited (cannot do EMT or CNA), but I might be able to volunteer at a local nursing home. Do you think this would be enough? Lastly, what is the schedule during the didactic phase like? Are there classes every day? Due to the longer commute, I would hope to have a day off to study. I would greatly appreciate any input! Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
