How I Got Into MED SCHOOL | My Pre-Med Journey | Doctor Mike

  • Опубликовано: 05 ноября 2017
  • Hey, guys! I know that a lot of you have been requesting a video of my pre-med or med school journey. Although I have unique pre med experience as I did an accelerated 7-year program, there is still a lot of insight for me to share with you,. This video covers everything from high school to college all the way to med school. Basically how I got into medical school and my premed journey.

    Initially, this video was over 2 hours long and we were able to cut it down to 20 minutes so I can expect for you to have some questions left unanswered. Leave me your medical school questions and comments down below as you know I love to respond to them in my monthly videos.

    After hearing your story , I couldn't love your philosophy towards life more. Being positive, experiencing everything and loving your own career are things you teach me in this video clip. Though I am not a doctor, I think your suggestions are suitable for every job. Thanks for sharing your life with us. Looking forward to watching your next video!

      Hope everyone is have a good day just want you all to know Jesus loves you ❤️ you are never alone even when you feel lonely. Jesus is amazing John 3:16 “ For God so loved the world that he sent his one and only son that whoever shall believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life” I you do believe it’s best to find a local church that believes Jesus as Lord and has died for our sins and rose again and now sits at the right hand of the throne and attend it and also repent meaning turn away from your sins and confess them to Jesus sounds hard but God will make a way. Also read the Bible and talk to Jesus start by saying abba father... of course we’re not going to be perfect but we believe in the one who is perfect

        Your words are inspiring. I was wondering what are your thoughts on students going for medicine, after getting a BA rather than a traditional BS. For the accelerated program you speak about, is it possible to apply with a BA?

                  Super helpful! Thank you so much! I am a bit late on my journey, but your words have inspired me to apply myself to field that I am passionate for: psychology. Becoming a psychiatrist is going to take a lot of time, effort, and it is a field that is ever changing, but I am ready to face these hardships and the looks of “you’re crazy for wanting to study for a decade!” I love studying and I love a good challenge, so I am willing to work hard for this! 🌱💫

                        I’m a singaporean so my exams ar different from yours. I want to tell my story
                        I was a shit student in primary school(7-12 years old)and I did badly,I got 180/300 which put me in the normal academic stream instead of the express stream which 70% of what my country took. I was looked down on called stupid,useless,all brawl no brain and a fuck up. I studied hard and got into express which was a very hard choice to do and I got into pure sciences(Only TOP few students get it)I never seen myself as a doctor but after looking at this ,I realised I was making the wrong decision of taking physics instead of biology. I wanted to save people,tell them what’s wrong,end people’s years of suffering from dieseases. But I’m not a A student. I was only A in normal academic but I should do what I love, I don’t know what to do with my life now.

                            No one can tell you if you Want to be a surgeon that’s on you but if your question is “I suck at chemistry and I still want to be a surgeon” well it doesn’t matter that you are not good in chemistry cuz for your first 4 years at the normal college you don’t have to major in chem or bio or physics for example last year economics majors scored highest on the med school test I don’t know what’s it called I forgot but I’ll put it down below

                          This is a great video!! I am a clinical education coordinator for LECOM, all the advice given in this video is solid advice!! We do an outreach program with high school students in our area (Upstate NY - like way upstate) , that are on the track to pursuing a career in medicine. I may have to tell my 4th-year students who manage the outreach program, to have the kids watch this video as part of their lecture series.

If is possible to become a Doctor, a E.N.T, being a Cuban who came to the US 2 years ago, ready to start College, without help from my parents, and earning 1500 per month , living in Miami and have to pay rent and more??? I always wanted to be a E.N.T and I’m not afraid but i don’t have support...😩

                                                                                          • Isabelle Espina

                                                                                            Varshita Ummadi, I know you’re asking Dr. Mike, but as a pre-med undergrad myself, I can say definitely! The more volunteering, the more shadowing you do, that’s how you get experience. You will not only visually see how being a doctor is like but you’re also learning. You get to experience what being in a medical setting is like. Plus, it is something you will be able to put in your resumes, cover letters, essays, personal statements, etc.

                                                                                            So yes, definitely go for it! :)

                                                                                            I will be taking a gap year after I graduate next summer and in that time frame, I am hoping to apply as a medical scribe. It is one of the better options in gaining experience in a medical setting as well as working with doctors and physicians.
