The Pulse: Finding the Med School That's Right for You

Monday, October 20th  |  8 PM ET / 5 PM PT

Join us for The Pulse! We’ll dig into the difference between osteopathic (DO) programs and allopathic (MD) programs and help you understand how to evaluate each school’s mission statement. We’ll be joined by the American Medical Student Association for a discussion about how curriculum factors and school policies can play a part in your decision. Lastly, we’ll look at some of the “intangible” factors that you should consider in choosing the right program for you.
