Dear Accepted Applicant,
Congratulations on your acceptance to the School of Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin! We know that you will get an outstanding education, the opportunity to pursue your career goals in medicine, and make life-long friends amongst your classmates from Wisconsin and across the U.S. It is an especially exciting time at MCW, as we are in the midst of curriculum revision.
During your medical school interview day, we presented our new curriculum model. As we highlighted during that session, a pilot of the new curriculum will begin with a small group of students from your class. The pilot will incorporate case based learning to provide the foundational knowledge and early exposure to patients to assure application of that knowledge.
You will have the opportunity to formally volunteer to be in the pilot after May 15, 2010. However, we have had inquiries by accepted applicants about the selection process for participating in the pilot. We are providing you with this opportunity to express your interest in volunteering for the pilot. If there are more volunteers than pilot positions, participants will be randomly selected from those who express interest. Please note, we cannot promise any one person that s/he will be selected. To help us understand your degree of interest in piloting our new curriculum, we ask that you return this email with your choice from the options below.
Again, the purpose of this memo is to obtain your level of interest in participating and does not ensure your inclusion in the pilot. Thank you – and congratulations on your acceptance to MCW!
