First, congratulations on your achievement! Being accepted to medical school is a challenge, and becoming the physician you’d like to be is an even bigger, lifelong one. Below are some tips to help guide you through the beginning of this exciting time.
Congratulations! Your child has made an incredible, awe-inspiring decision to pursue their medical degree. The path to their MD, DO, PhD and more is longer and windier than most would expect from the outset.
Have no fear: We have lived and breathed medical education for 14 years now, working with countless students and parents in the process. We're here to help paint the picture for you of what you can expect, and how you can support your child in the process.
Settle in, get comfortable, feel free to take notes, and if you don't have a ton of time now, bookmark this page in your browser so you can refer to it as needed (or PRN, as we say in medicine) going forward.
A core part of our purpose at Med School Tutors is to bring free, helpful, and proven guidance and information to as many students as possible. Now, in addition to our blog, webinars, social channels and more, we've launched our USMLE Tutors Forum!
Since our blog's inception, we've answered students' questions via their comments on our blog, and that got us thinking: There had to be a better way to help students get access to our tutors' expert advice for free. Et voila! The USMLE Tutors Forum was born.
