Currently, I am enrolled in Electrical Engineering program at another university. I was contemplating doing premed prior to entering university; however, at the time, I had the interest in doing engineering as well. I was looking at programs for BEng/MD and I could not find them, even after consulting advisors.
I am going into my third year of my program with COOP. Since the coursework is heavy and I will be working, I won’t have the time to take Organic Chemistry, Sociology and Biology before I graduate. Is it still acceptable to apply to Stanford med school with only Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Psychology and English courses required along with MCAT scores?
I believe I can self study the material but, I would not be able to fit lectures into my schedule with 6 courses per term. Or should I take an extra year to do the other courses?
Another option would be to drop engineering and spend 1 year doing a minor with the other courses I have not done yet. Afterwards, I would apply with DipEng and BSc minor into med school instead of BEng. Which route will be best academically?
LMAO at 2:12 Glutamate + Pyruvate makes alpha-ketoglutarate + Alanine you mixed it up. Funny how Stanford med a prestigious univers. that charges way too much in the first place would make a mistake like this. Not tryna bash on the school but just goes to show low tier or high tier med school the bottom of the class student will still be named a Doctor #beatthesystem #UCC1-0 standford
I'm stuck in the middle. On one hand, I want to go into medicine because if I can work my ass off and implement all that I know to save someone's life, it's all worth it. Specifically, I want to go into neurological surgery.
On the other side of the spectrum, I want to understand artifical intelligence and get my PhD in Deep Learning. If I can help drive AI far enough, we can automate a lot of the time sinks in medicine, which can save people at a larger scale. I've learned all that I could over the past year, and I still can't commit on which career path.
I would be happy in a hospital, whether that would be doing rounds or operating on someone for 31 hours. But what if I can save people at a larger scale? I'm stuck.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
