A life in medicine is something that many dream of but few achieve. The tests students face–both literal and figurative–just to get into medical school are designed to weed out the weak. In Planning a Life in Medicine, the experts at The Princeton Review will help you succeed in a premedical program, score higher on the MCAT, meet the challenges of medical school, and ultimately flourish in your medical career.

More than just a comprehensive plan for getting into medical school, Planning a Life in Medicine is a handbook that will help you to cultivate the skills and habits–such as compartmentalizing knowledge and improving concentration–that will help you along your “path of heart” and serve you well throughout your education and medical career.
