I have a passion for helping and advising people and seeing them get better, I'm strongly about attracted to healthcare but science and math are my weakest subjects which a good doctor would need to be strong in. I'm more interested in the patient care send administration aspects of healthcare....

Should I pick a major (Biology) relating to medical school to prepare for Med School, or should I just enter Med School with any degree I want?

I've been to seminars where people have told me to be what I wanted to be, because schools actually like diversity instead of "typical science majors". The only question that they've never answered was if it had given them an easier time understanding difficult concepts in the medical field. I...

Medicine is a tough field to study in so what motivated you to continue studying it even through hard times?

I've always known that studying medicine wasn't easy. Personally knowing people who have stepped off the pre-med track has made me wonder what exactly has encouraged those who are now doctors to continue. Getting answers from those who have experienced this first hand is something that will...

For anyone who has been/is pre-med: How many years into college did you learn you wanted to go pre-med? What experiences or classes in college made you decide pre-med? How many years (undergrad and med-school) did it end up taking?

I'm possibly interested in pre-med, but am wondering if it is best to go into it directly, or if it is possible to go into it in say, my second year of college and how that may affect my time in school. Thanks! #doctor #medicine #pre-med #medical-school...
