BGSO First-Year Coordinator
The BGSO is looking for a new first year coordinator for the incoming class of BSTP students (starting in February). The role of the first year coordinator is to welcome the incoming BSTP first years to Case Western and to help them have a smooth transition into grad school. This includes providing resources such as housing information, coordinating events (hopefully in person next year), and organizing student panels to inform students about rotations and how to choose a mentor. You also attend BGSO exec board meetings, gaining experience in leadership and student advocacy. Reach out to the BGSO (email@example.com) if you’re interested!

BSTP Recruitment Volunteer Opportunities
Calling all current PhD students!
BSTP recruitment is quickly approaching--the first virtual interview day is earlier than usual, December 18--and we rely on current students to be the warm and welcoming faces of the School of Medicine.
Since interviews are entirely virtual this year, the opportunities to be involved in recruitment are slightly different. Here is the link to a sign-up sheet for the various volunteer positions, and here is the link to each job description. There will be four interview “weekends,” one in December, January, February, and March. Jobs include:
- Zoom happy hour/social hour with candidates
- Q&A session about the program, Case, and Cleveland
- recording a “tour” of your apartment
- point of contact for candidates pre- and post-interviews
- on call with Debbie Noureddine to host candidates whose interviewers didn’t show
Please sign up for as many as you are interested in and could possibly volunteer for. We will not schedule you for all of the slots you sign up for, but it helps us to have multiple options.
As we iron out the schedule for each activity, we will update the Google spreadsheet and email those who have signed up for the particular duties.
Thank you in advance for your participation! We are grateful for your availability and willingness to give back to the incoming class during what is a tumultuous, uncertain time.
We so appreciate your help!
