Talking Admissions & Med Student Life
With Dr. Benjamin Chan
This is a resource to guide you on your journey to and through medical school. Get the inside scoop from pre-med advisors, physicians, faculty, alumni, and current medical students about different aspects of medical school. Topics will range from tips to getting admitted (and having your application stand out), to familiarizing yourself with the culture of medical student life, and how physicians came to choose their field of medicine.
