Medical School Admissions
interested in becoming a medical doctor? If you haven't yet
applied to med school, then you will (hopefully) find
Medical School Admission Dot Com very helpful.
Medical school application volume rose by 4.6% from 2004 to
2005. Figures for 2006 are expected to show that interest in
medical education either held steady or increased yet again.
As a result, an already competitive admissions process
appears to be becoming even more competitive. But don't
fear. We have information on many different aspects of the
admission process including both the AMCAS and the MCAT that
can help you along the way all the way to your USMLE.
What We Think You
is not easy to get through, and the profession itself is
definitely not for everyone. Think long and hard about
becoming a doctor before you commit yourself to this career
track. Being a doctor means making huge sacrifices, first in
medical school and then later in your internship and
shifts will be the norm not just during your training but
throughout your career. Even when you're not working
directly with patients, you will be spending a significant
amount of time as a doctor reading and staying current in
new medical techniques and research. The people who excel in
medicine are those who are happy spending every waking
moment thinking about it – and those are precisely the kind
of people that medical schools are looking for.
People are only half-joking when they describe a medical
career as a "jealous lover" who takes over the
practitioner's life. Studies have found that doctors tend to
have a very high divorce rate and, ironically, a relatively
short life expectancy. That situation seems to be changing
somewhat, precisely because the younger doctors coming into
profession now insist on more work-life balance than their
elders were willing to accept. Still, medicine is far more
than a job. It takes as much dedication to thrive in a
medical career as it does to get into medical school and to
excel in medical training.
website will help you get accepted into a med program, but
we want to make sure you are aware of the downside and have
given proper thought and consideration to these points. If
you have not, you could end up unhappy with your choice of
career path and you will have taken an opportunity to attend
med school from someone else who has the devotion to the
"jealous lover" and the dedication to become a good doctor.
