8 Questions To Ask When Choosing A Medical School
Choosing a college to attend is no easy task so we’ve come up with eight questions to ask yourself to help narrow down your selection:
1. Will my current high school grades get me into medical school and if not, what can I do to make it happen?
(Note: According to an article on Yahoo! Education [http://education.yahoo.com/college/essentials/articles/college/planning_ahead_med_school.html], “Many medical schools do not include community college grades when calculating GPAs”.)
2. Do I work better in a large classroom or small classroom?
3. Do I want to sacrifice attending the best medical school (academic recognition) to be closer to family and friends?
4. Do I want the best education money can buy or do I want an education that fits within my current financial situation?
5. Do I want more hands-on training sessions (patient contact) or more lectures and book learning?
(Note: IAMP (http://iamp.edu) offers clinical and didactic training.)
6. Do I want a certificate or diploma so I can start working in the medical field right away? And if so, will the job and certification I receive offer early training for further studies?
7. Will the college help prepare me for further education should I want to obtain a bachelor’s, master’s or PhD or need to transfer to another medical school?
8. What does the college require upon entrance and can I meet all those requirements? (i.e. application; entrance exam; letters of recommendations from teachers, employers, colleagues, etc.; certain grade point average and school records, extracurricular activities, etc.)
Finally, medical school is expensive. Don’t forget to ask, “Does the medical school offer private scholarships, work-study programs, and a qualified financial aid counselor?”
