The Pulse: "Getting the Most Out of Your Summer"

Monday, March 30  |  8 PM ET / 5 PM PT

While other college students might view summer as time-off, pre-meds know that it represents valuable time to make progress on the path to becoming a doctor. In this episode of The Pulse we'll explore what different students do during the summer months to improve their chances of getting into medical school. Whether you're a freshman just beginning to explore the process, or a senior already filling out applications, we have essential tips to help you make the most of this valuable time.

The episode will take place on Monday, March 30. We hope to see you there!
