The Pulse is going on summer vacation!

Well, actually we're headed to our MCAT Summer Intensive Program, but we hope to catch a day or two at the beach while we're there.

Whatever your plans for the summer, we hope you'll stayed tuned for some of our favorite Pulse episodes from the past year- including a second showing of Med School Insider 2015.

Look out for more information coming soon!
