Are there any medical professionals that I can interview quickly?

I have to interview any kind of doctor/ healthcare worker for an English paper in my class, so I’d greatly appreciate a few answers to include in my assignment: 1) please tell me about your educational and professional background, and why you wanted to go into the medical field. 2) what are some obstacles that you encountered when going through medical school? How did you get past them? 3) what advice would you offer others who are trying to get into your profession? 4) How are you able to maintain a work-life balance when having such a demanding job?

Is it harder for D.O.'s to get the same respect as M.D.'s?

I've recently become interested in #osteopathic #medicine. The philosophy of treating patients as a whole instead of just symptoms appeals to me. However, I've heard that it may be hard for D.O.'s to find residencies that are not biased. I hadn't even heard of D.O.'s until a year ago, neither have many people that I know. Will this effect how I will be seen as a #doctor? #premed #premedical #premedicine #physician #medical-practice #medschool #medical-school #holistic

What is the best major for Medical School?

I hear a lot of people choose majors other than pre-med/biology based majors even though they plan to take the MCAT and go to medical school. I am currently thinking about being a biochemistry major or entering the engineering department and am wondering whether that will have a significant impact on my MCAT score and getting into medical school. #premed #engineering #medical-practice #medicine

What kinds of careers exist for those passionate about both medicine and politics/law?

Hi! I am a current junior with a passion for law and medicine and am working towards an international career that involves advocacy and research. Unlike the process of becoming a doctor, the pathway to my dream profession is not as clearly defined. Now that I'm halfway through my college journey, I would love some advice because I have no idea what kinds of places would be looking to employ a student with an International Relations and Global Health double major. I would love to hear more about careers that are involved in both politics and healthcare with an emphasis on how one might get there. How much schooling would one of these careers usually require? Would you recommend attending graduate school, and if so, should it be for both a medical degree and a law degree (MD/JD)? Or would a Masters in Public Health (MPH) suffice for these career fields? What kinds of internships or research opportunities might you have heard of for those with my similar interests? Thanks in advice for the life-changing insight! #medicine #law #politics #graduate-school #law-school #medical-practice #international #globalization
