What are the best movies to watch to learn about the work force?

Hi! I'm Olivia. I just graduated from high school. I'm asking this because I really have no idea what I'm going to major in once I'm in college. I'm not saying that one film will magically put the answer in front of me, but I'm curious as to what will wait for me after college. Also, I know I...

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...

What are medical school committees looking for in an applicant (research experience, extracurricular/volunteer activities, grade point average,...)?

I am a research postdoc fellow in life sciences. I was recently asked how to get accepted to medical school. This is not really in my field so I figured I should share this question. Hope the answers will be helpful to any student going through the selection process. #doctor #medicine...

How do I get past my fear of doing more harm than good in my future career in medicine?

As a doctor, there will be times where I will mess up a procedure or will not be able to save a patient; this will end with a life being lost. How do I get past my fear of being responsible for the deaths I may take part in and have them define me more than the lives I might save. #medicine...

How do you know medical school is “for you?”

Being young it is easy to say you want to be a doctor, but with little to no exposure it’s hard to know if you’re cut for it. How does one know that they should attend medical school if they are unsure before they get into college? #medschool #doctor...

What should I do while in highschool to figure out what I want to do after I graduate.

I'm currently a 9th grader in high school and I don't really know what I want to do after high school. I think I might be interested in business, medicine, law, or something related to sports. What can I do now to figure out what would be a good career path for me? #lawyer #law #sports...
