THE ULTIMATE PRE-MED CHECK LIST
At times the work of a dedicated pre-med student seems never-ending. I hope this condensed version of responsibilities and things to consider along the way helps make the tasks at hand a little less daunting and a little more attainable! Enjoy!
A fellow health-science advocate shared this Google Drive with me awhile back. It is filled with resources covering a wide variety of high-yield topics that are heavily tested on the MCAT.
The categories highlighted in this deck are:
MCAT Anki Sets
Biology + Biochemistry
Introduction to the MCAT
Khan Academy Notes
MCAT Schedule Template
Psychology + Sociology
Study + "Cheat Cheats"
I hope these resources help you in your preparation for test day, as well as aiding your success in your STEM courses as an undergraduate.

As always, my resources + notes + feedback + recommendations are 100% FREE! I wish you the absolute best on your journey to becoming a physician, and I hope I am able to make this process a little more manageable!
Deep breaths! Good Luck! You got this!
SCIENCE GUYZ TUTORING SERVICES
Science Guyz has more than 10 years of experience developing study materials from UGA exams and quizzes, and is constantly extending their expertises to other university's curriculum as well. Their materials are continually revised and updated each semester when professors, textbooks, and teaching styles change. Through our years of experience, they have detailed knowledge of the various instructors who teach these courses. As a result, their materials focus on the types of questions each specific instructor asks, so that students not only learn and understand the material, but also comprehend how to apply it to specific question styles.

PRE-MED UNDERGRADUATE FOUR YEAR "GAME PLAN" TEMPLATE
Here is a template for laying out the courses you plan to take each semester of your undergraduate career.
My hope is that having a visual aid and hard copy of the material will help ensure the completion of all prerequisites, as well as make the planning of the timing of those prerequisite courses around your intended MCAT date easier.
SUCCESS FOR PRE-HEALTH STUDENTS IN UNDERGRAD AND BEYOND
SHOULD YOU LIVE FOR YOUR RESUME OR YOUR EULOGY?
David Brooks gives a very good talk that discusses whether or not we can balance the self who craves success (a great resume) and the self who seeks connection (a great ecology).
I believe this is useful along the journey of becoming any form of healthcare provider. We all need to consider how the depth of our character will have a major impact on the type of physician we will be.

Cost and prestige of where you go to med school appear to be undeniably important when considering where your future leads you.
This doctor gives his opinion on how the name of your school affects your future.
YOUR HEALTH DEPENDS ON
WHERE YOU LIVE
Where you live: It impacts your health as much as diet and genes do, but it's not part of your medical records.
Dr. Bill Davenhall shows how overlooked government geo-data (from local heart-attack rates to toxic dumpsite info) can mesh with mobile GPS apps to keep doctors in the loop. Call it "geo-medicine."

Pathway to Med School Program
What the heck is an AHEC? The Southwest Georgia Area Health Education Center (SOWEGA-AHEC) is a community-driven, nonprofit organization whose goal is to increase access to healthcare by improving distribution of healthcare providers in southwest Georgia.
This is a great resource for pre-medical experience, such as internships, shadowing, and just making connections with physicians who are in fields of your interest that practice in rural areas!

U.S. MEDICAL SCHOOL APPLICATIONS AND MATRICULANTS STATISTICS
The table below displays the number of 2020-2021 applications and matriculants by U.S. medical schools, showing the percent of in state, out of state, women, and men.
My hope for this website is that it will serve as a safe place to ask questions, receive genuine and quality advice/feedback, learn from my mistakes, failures, successes, & everything in between, access helpful resources, and discover new ways to embrace and improve your path to becoming a healthcare provider!
My resources are 100% free to you! However, I am a medical student who spends a lot of time creating resources (and possibly procrastinating lolz). So, if you find my resources helpful or my posts encouraging, here is an easy way to support me!
