Description

So You Want To Be A Doctor? is a practical, how-to guide about becoming a medical doctor from an insider’s perspective. It addresses all the strategies needed to succeed as a medical school candidate, and then goes a step further than any other admissions guide on the market today to provide a glimpse of life as a medical student and intern through real ward experiences. It provides a thorough explanation of the different medical fields, and explores issues such as lifestyle, salary, and competition for residency and fellowship positions for each specialty. It outlines options for not-traditional students seeking a medical career, namely older candidates, ethnic minorities, economically disadvantages students, and members of the Armed Forces. It also includes a section on Canadian, foreign and osteopathic medical schools as alternatives to obtaining an American medical degree. In short, it describes the complete journey from thinking about a career in medicine to qualifying as a licensed MD.
