Choosing a path to medical school

10. Demonstrating an ability to remain calm under pressure


Still not sure if going to medical school is for you.? Don’t fret. Beyond the classroom and plethora of resources via advisors with the Premedical Studies Program, another good resource for exploring this career direction is a UGA publication called PreMed Magazine.

Created by students at UGA the publication aims to inform students about preparing for medical school, but also has information for students who are considering a science-based career or major at UGA. 

According to the website:         

PreMed Magazine is a student organization that aims to help pre-medical students at The University of Georgia achieve success in the medical field. As a part of PreMed Magazine, members will have the opportunity to refine their writing and editorial skills, meet prominent people within the fields of medicine and journalism, learn strategies of successful pre-medical students, and develop the skills needed to achieve their goals. This organization is open for students of all majors and concentrations

A new edition was released earlier this week. In it, authors take on the myths of pseudoscience, the many myths surrounding a career in medicine and even the myths of choosing a science-based major here at UGA. 

Orientation meetings for students with an interest in medicine as a career are held each semester where students can get advice about enhancing your chances of getting into medical school, as well as connect with a network of other students and professionals with similar interests. The next session will be held on reading day, December 4, 2013.

If you’ve got an interest in science or medicine, the resources are here to further spark that interest. Reach out, attend meetings and get advice from those who know best.  The University of Georgia has the resources you need to make the right career choice.
