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

        You are very true about the fact that there's always another test to prepare for. From experience, take things one step at a time. I just had my GRE this morning and it was horrible. I panicked for solid 5 hours straight cuz I have midterms coming up and ANOTHER GRE apparently, and for a couple of moments I was about to give up on going to grad school. What helped in this situation is to shorten the timeline you are thinking/stressing about. There are homeworks, quizzes, midterms, standardized exams, and applications coming up. You won't be able to handle all of this at once. Divide and conquer everyone, and worry about things when it's the right time for it. For example, if your test is not next week, don't start to panic about how you might forget your ID on your exam day. Also, always have some peeps to cheer you up and care for you when you hit your low. Friends are gems and will make the toughest times more bearable. Finally, be healthy and happy and don't get the daunting process of applying and doing grad school/med school get you. Good luck everyone :')

                            I'm in high school and ever since the seventh grade, I've been so passionate about becoming a doctor. I just feel the need to help people and do it in a way that I love what I'm doing. I've been so interested in anatomy and biology. Just knowing how the body works, what happens when you're sick or hurt and just knowing how to treat it. It's mind blowing. I hope to go to med school one day for family medicine♥️

                                          Is this is good reason for me to become a doctor?
                                          So I'm in 8th grade and I have a passion (idk what else to call it) for helping people. Like literally when I was in like th 4th grade i would see a homeless man and make my mom stop and give my own money to him bc my mom wont. I want to go into the medical field because I want to make a difference in the world. I cant put my finger on it exactly but ik that I want to help people. Also i want to become an neurosurgeon or a surgeon of some type

I guess I always was curious about the human body, in elementary school, when someone saw blood, the normal response would be EWWWWWW. I was always fascinated. Your story, your struggles, and your accomplishments may have sparked something in me. I just wanna thank you for everything you do.

                                                                I’m 15 and although there are so many things pulling me to wanting to be a doctor, I’m afraid that I won’t like it. I have the grades, I love science and interacting with people, I have a constant desire to help people, but being a doctor is one of few jobs where it’s pretty much a lifelong commitment. Like I’m not going to go through 6+ years of schooling just to quit! So yeah, if you’re reading this do you have any words of advice? I think I want to be a doctor but I’m 15 and I definitely don’t think I’m ready to commit myself to a career rn, but I have to choose my a levels.

Most of the time when I do think of a career I pursue, a week later I am not interested in it at all. Right now I am considering going to law school to become a lawyer, but just a week ago I wanted to be a welder. I think going to law school and becoming a lawyer would be a better move for me then welding, because learning about law is one of my favorite hobbies and has been for a long time (like 3 years). I'm sure that both of us will find a career that we enjoy doing, I have been trying to practice not worrying about the future too much, I find it to distract me a lot. Then again I also finds that it motivates me to do better in school, which I do need cause sometimes I wonder why I even do bother with school and the thought of me having a good job motivates me.

                                                                  I wish you the best.

I’ll travel about 14 hours in order to get there, but I’m so excited about this “We all made it!” moment. I already miss this awesome community, even though the people at my current university are super cool colleagues as well. :)
