Have you always loved helping people?
Whether it was your little brother or sister who came down with the flu, or your friend who fell and scraped his or her knee, you’ve always been there to provide comfort and do what you could to get them feeling back to normal.
If you want to take your care and compassion for other’s health and transform it into a career, med school may be for you like it was for Rachel Tobin Yale, an active participant in her senior class council and current med-school student.
However, taking a passion for medicine and turning it into your profession isn’t a simple task. Your medical journey starts with med school, and submitting your best application will better your odds of making your dream a reality.
1. Have ample research experience.
Med schools love to see that you’ve spent time in a lab during your undergrad doing medical and scientific research. Finding cures to deadly diseases and sicknesses is another sometimes overlooked part of the medical field, and showing your commitment to working in a lab is key to a strong application.
Your research can showcase what you’re passionate about getting involved in. Whether it’s direct patient care or behind-the scenes medicine development, cater your research to match what you’re hoping to do with a med degree.
2. Have people you trust review your application before submitting it.
With anything in life, the more involved you are with something, the harder it is to find faults with what you’re doing. Have another set of eyes deeply analyze your application to make sure you didn’t miss something or fall short in any area of your description and representation of what you can bring to the programs.
In addition to grammatical and professionalism advice, a trusted proofreader will highlight additional points or vital experiences you left off your application that should be there.
They say if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. If you love seeing people healthy, the best “work” for you may revolve around medicine.
