Future Doc's Advice for Pre-Meds

I remember when I first considered becoming a doctor. I bought books, went to open days, joined sites, even considered MedLink (Don't waste your money). But then I found the world of blogging. I found so much advice and help from students going through the process or had done it in the past few years. I plan to make several posts stemming from this one. I want to help future students, but also get some things clear in my mind for me. I plan to cover:
  • Why do you want to be a doctor?
  • General Requirements
  • Work Experience
  • Personal Statement
  • The UKCAT and BMAT
  • General Application Info
  • Gap Years
  • Which Medical School?
  • Preparing for the Interview
  • Things which aren't true
I've got some drafts lined up already. I'll also be posting about my plans for the future depending on my results.
