CASPer Prep Program
June - September
In collaboration with the University of Ottawa Black Medical Students Association (BMSA), the program aims to support all interested students with preparation for the Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (CASPer). The CASPer is a digital admissions tool that tests for personal characteristics such as empathy, ethics, and self-awareness. This student-led prep course allows participants to access various resources and practice materials as needed to better prepare for the official CASPer examination. This is a 4-week program; the applications come out in the summer of each year, and the program runs from June to September.
