So You Want To Be a Doctor?
So You Want To Be A Doctor? is a practical, how-to guide about becoming a medical doctor from an
insider’s perspective. It addresses all the strategies needed to succeed as a medical school candidate,
and then goes a step further than any other admissions guide on the market today to provide a glimpse
of life as a medical student and intern through real ward experiences. It provides a thorough explanation
of the different medical fields, and explores issues such as lifestyle, salary, and competition for
residency and fellowship positions for each specialty. It outlines options for not-traditional students
seeking a medical career, namely older candidates, ethnic minorities, economically disadvantages students,
and members of the Armed Forces. It also includes a section on Canadian, foreign and osteopathic
medical schools as alternatives to obtaining an American medical degree. In short, it describes
the complete journey from thinking about a career in medicine to qualifying as a licensed MD.
