UTCOMLS Ambassador Program

The College of Medicine logoUTCOMLS Ambassador Program has worked with the Office of Admissions and the Dean’s Office to bring medical students a new avenue to represent our school and this city that we have grown to love. We have launched an Ambassador Program that will represent The University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences (UTCOMLS) in numerous events.

Our UTCOMLS Ambassadors assist the Office of Admissions in the recruitment of prospective medical students, participate and assist with events set forth by the Office of Admissions, including Pre-interview Meet and Greets, Interview Visit Day Campus Tours, Interview Day IISC Interactive Tours, Recruitment Events, On-demand Health Science Campus Tours, Second Look Saturday, Medical School Orientation, Keynote Speaker visits and Potential Donor visits.

We are excited to have an official group dedicated to representing our great school!
