2023-2024 Commonwealth (Geisinger)

1500 characters for all prompts

If you are applying to the Abigail Geisinger Scholars Program, please share with the Admissions Committee what primary care and/or psychiatry means to you, and why you believe you are a good fit for the Abigail Geisinger Scholars Program. (Still answer questions 2-4 below though. Only question 1 is substituted by this prompt)

If not:

1. Given Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine’s unique mission and values, please tell us why you believe you are a good fit for our institution.

2. List the five most important attributes you believe a physician should possess. Please choose one that you believe you embody and describe a personal experience that demonstrates this trait?

3. Geisinger Commonwealth values diversity, health equity, inclusion, and social justice. Tell us how you will share in this mission.

4. If you have previously applied to medical school, please describe your significant experiences between this year’s application and your previous application. If you are not a previous applicant, please type, “N/A” in the response area.


Good luck to everyone applying!

Please note that these are old data. The school now uses an MMI, not one-on-one interviews.

Re-applicant and pre-wrote my stuff 👏🏾. I also LOVED their secondary questions as someone who is really big on social justice and diversity so this was very easy for me to get through without it being to strenuous.
 
Is #1 (Given Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine’s unique mission and values, please tell us why you believe you are a good fit for our institution?) a pseudo why us? but with more space to talk about yourself a bit too?
 
This school has literally the worst website I've ever seen. Nothing works... how am I supposed to learn more what your curriculum has to offer?

Does anyone know for the re-applicant question, should you respond to this question if you’re reapplying to medical school but first time applying to this school?
