Student Ambassadors

The University of Missouri School of Medicine Student Ambassadors are dedicated medical students who are part of the Admissions Office team. They help with on- and off-campus recruitment activities, public relations, and act as liaisons among visiting students and the student body. Ambassadors share the MU School of Medicine's goal of attracting the best students possible. They provide assistance to prospective students in a number of ways, including: facilitating networking events, coordinating medical student panels for interested groups and classes, arranging medical school tours for interviewees, and communicating one-on-one with prospective students.
