Students will be selected to participate in the Student Surgery Leadership Weekend based on their interest in academic surgery, qualifications, and USMLE Step 1 scores. If USMLE scores are not available at the time of the application deadline, please mention this in the application and the expected availability date. Scores can be submitted at a later date. If scores are not available by the time decisions are made, additional information may be requested.

The Academic Surgeon Development Program at the University of Michigan will cover room, board and meals for a select group of applicants. This includes the students selected to participate who attend medical schools other than the University of Michigan.


** Please note that although faculty members of the University of Michigan Department of Surgery will review applications, selection for participation in the Student Surgery Leadership Weekend will not impact any future application to the University of Michigan Surgery Residency Programs. **


Thank you for your interest in the Student Surgery Leadership Weekend. We look forward to your application.
