As an aspiring physician, I would like to seek any opportunities to explore the medical field and healthcare during my last year of college and gap year. I am a junior, majoring in Biology, and I intend to apply for medical school in the spring of 2019. Last summer, I shadowed several surgeons; currently, I volunteer at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and TA for Organic Chemistry Lab. I would also definitely like to explore and pursue clinical research and public health, as well as interacting with working professionals in these fields.
I would definitely appreciate any insight from Brandeis alumni on finding these opportunities and maximizing my time before I graduate. Additionally, I would be grateful for any guidance on navigating the process of applying for medical school and entering the medical field.
