MED Teaching Assistants

Our medical and dental teaching assistants are a vital aspect of our MED program each summer. The TA team attends lecture, leads labs, and assists with small group and case study sessions, along with leading office hours and test prep prior to exams. TA positions include:

  • subject specialists (biochemistry, dental theory, gross anatomy, histology, microbiology, and physiology)
  • tutoring
  • testing
  • professional development (professional writing, MED Core TAs)


Virtual TA interest meetings will be held to discuss what the position entails, share experiences from former TAs, and answer any questions potential applicants may have. Potential TA applicants are invited to join one of the interest meetings via the link:
