AAMC web pages: Aspiring Docs update

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve added a new fact sheet to the Aspiring Docs website: What’s It Like to… Be a Medical Scribe?

We’ve also added five new Inspiring Stories to our collection:

  • Jessica Means: Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, 2017
    Jessica shares how she balances going to medical school and being a professional pianist.
  • Alex Gannon: University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, 2018
    As a gay and transgender med student, Alex tells applicants it’s okay to be themselves when applying and selecting a medical school.
  • Navin Kesari: Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, 2014
    Navin is inspired by his parents who immigrated to the U.S. and made sacrifices so that he and his brother could pursue the American dream.
  • Allison Lyle: University of Louisville School of Medicine, 2017
    Allison got accepted on her fourth application to medical school. She shares mistakes from her first three applications and how she stayed motivated.
  • Julio Mendoza: Howard University College of Medicine, 2017
    Chronic pain and hospitalizations exposed Julio to medicine at a young age, now he wants to use his experiences to help others.

Lastly, we also have several new posts by medical student bloggers on Aspiring Docs Diaries.

As always, if you are interested in partnering with us on any new fact sheets or resources, or would like to suggest a student to participate in the blog or aspiringdocs.

Warmest regards,
Tami Levin
