“Is a Postbaccalaureate Medical Program Right for You?” (Ibrahim Busnaina, “U.S. News & World Report”)

Dr. Busnaina gives a useful overview of the advantages and disadvantages of attending a postbac medical program. If you are considering pursuing a postbac, look at each school’s required application essays as early as possible. Many require you to list your volunteer and work experience in a health field, so make time to shadow a variety of health professionals, volunteer in a medical setting and be involved in at least one community service organization related to your career goals. Other common essay questions involve describing your reasons for wanting to pursue a career in the health professions and explaining any weak spots on your academic transcript.
