“It’s far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has.” – Hippocrates
You’ve put in the countless of studying, shadowing, volunteering, etc. You never have to worry about the MCAT again. You are finally going to medical school. First and foremost, congratulations!
And now for the best advice that I have everyone who sees this follows – the #1 tip for incoming medical students:
Enjoy your summer break!
I know it’s not a revolutionary concept. It isn’t even an original idea. However, it is the best piece of advice you’ll hear from numerous (probably most) current medical students. This is your chance to do that “thing” you’ve been wanting to do but never had the time. Go on an adventure, read those books (not textbooks!), or visit far away relatives.
Do whatever it is that that makes you happy. Trust me… you’ll have plenty of time to get serious here soon. Quite simply, just enjoy life!
A new podcast episode has been posted that covers tetanus and botulism. Also, I reworked the podcast artwork and came up with the image shown above. Please check out the podcast and let me know what you think!
The Medical Minded Podcast is official!
I encourage everyone to visit here or go to the iTunes store and a quick search should should allow you to find it. The iTunes artwork isn’t currently working, but I’ve made adjustments so hopefully it gets updated in the next few days.
The current “test” podcast is over the pathogenic Bacillus species of bacteria and I intend to continue making more educational-based podcasts. However, if anyone has suggestions for subject matter they’d like to be covered just let me know! I’d really like some input!
This applies to premeds, med students or anyone else! It can be over educational material, writing essays, application processes, research or anything else you can think of. Hopefully I’ll know the answer and if not, I will do my best to come up with an answer!
To summarize in a few words:
Comments, suggestions, and questions are highly welcomed and encouraged!
Medical Minded Podcast is currently in the works and I’ve already recorded a few episodes. Pending iTunes approval, we will be up and running so stay tuned!
