How Premeds Find Their Med Schools

Play Download media

Among the biggest projects a premed faces: not just getting into medical school, but getting into one that meets their needs. Do they want a school strong in service learning activities? Will they be happy in a system that recognizes academics first and foremost? Is the location more important than other factors? These are only a few of the factors that go into the decision...and Dave's co-hosts couldn't care less about them. There were only two things that M1s Kyle Leubka, Gabriel Conley, Joyce Wahba and Eric Schnieders were most interested in... Listeners Ryan and Michelle called in to pitch show ideas. Ryan wants a show about Technology, Business, and Policy (he's a podcaster at the University of Pennsylvania medical school...check them out). And Michelle wants to know whether her currently well-cared-for Husky will survive having a med student owner. Watch for future episodes, guys! What topics would you like to see us tackle? Do you have any strongly held criteria you're using to judge medical schools? Call us at 347-SHORTCT anytime, visit our Facebook group, or email theshortcoats@gmail.com. Do all three!
