3 Things To Do If You are Interested in Attending Medical School
Medicine is changing swiftly. As you read this, a new recommendation is being developed and reviewed. By the time that you are finished reading this, new facts are being discovered about drugs and other compounds that aren't technically considered "drugs." With that being said, it's important to develop a practice of reading something "medicine-related" that interests you at least 30 minutes a day. Physicians call this continuing medical education.
