Once you have made it through you medical school interviews and have been accepted into a program, then it's time to start learning all about the medical field and helping individuals lead healthier and longer lives. Many medical students and doctors alike have the ability to travel all across the globe, to places like Indonesia, Jakarta or even Banyuwangi. And if you talk to some of the senior doctors that have made humanitarian trips in the past, they will tell you it is incredibly rewarding to be able to help people in your free time. It also doesn't hurt that there are usually a day or two of R and R scheduled, allowing for a bit of down time at a Bali Villa is one of the perks of humanitarian work.
Students who are studying for the MCATs and getting ready to apply to Medical school have a lot on their plate. Exam preparations, interviews, and big decisions are just a few things to worry about while staying on top of your grades; it can feel like more than a full time job. Make sure to help yourself wherever you can, from using the internet to scan important documents, to sending a fax online rather than going to the post office, saving a little time here and there can go a long way in managing your time.
You don't have to be a pre-med student to know that a good night's sleep is good for your grades, your overall health and for your state of mind. Make sure you are getting a good night's rest at your university housing. Some students will elect to get an organic mattress, a new mattress cover or maybe just a new comforter to help them get a good night's sleep in their student housing bed.
Many of the students who study pre-med in the undergrad and then go on to medical school find that they like the business aspects of medicine as much as the actual medicine. These individuals are often encouraged to talk to executive recruiters and other well-connected individuals working with potential employers. If you think you are a good fit for a leadership position, it might be a good idea to talk to a recruiting agency.
