Five years in the making, The High School Doctor is the premier resource written for high school students interested in the medical field. Every year, approximately 20,000 college students apply to medical school. Only a fraction of those students are accepted each year, making medical school a highly competitive option. The application process can be quite stressful and expensive. In addition, every student must take an examination called the MCAT or Medical College Admissions Test before applying. However, all of these steps can be bypassed.
Did you know that you can have conditional acceptance into medical school right after high school? Nearly 50 universities across the nation accept high school students conditionally into medical school right from high school. This route can save thousands of dollars, bundles of stress, and loads of time. Not all of these programs are very well advertised nor are they well known. Knowledge of these programs and the steps to take to get into them will make you a competitive applicant.
The High School Doctor is the premier resource and tool kit for getting into an accelerated/combined (BA/MD) medical program. There are unique never before seen program descriptions of each BA/MD program. The authors describe the paths to a successful application and interview. In addition, the book contains information on choosing the right college for you, financial aid opportunities that you couldn't imagine, and unique post-cards that you can tear away and put into the mail box for all of the BA/MD programs. This book will save you hundreds of dollars and time!
The High School Doctor is the only resource written by physicians who have gone through the process. Then don’t miss out on an opportunity that can put you on the fast track towards medical school.
