Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What prospective medical students can expect before, during, and after medical school.

Each year more and more people are entering medical school, yet many have little or no idea on how to get the most out of the programs offered. Students can now turn to Med School Rx, which will take them inside the minds of the admissions personnel, professors, examiners, and educators whom they will meet along their medical school journey.

Written by Walter Carl Hartwig, a professional medical educator, Med School Rx is the essential reference guide for a comprehensive view of the medical school experience. Written from an insider’s perspective, Med School Rx teaches prospective students how to navigate medical school. Through Hartwig’s advice, students will discover how to improve their chances of gaining admission, how to be more successful as medical students, how to demystify the intense learning curve of medical science, and how to successfully transition from student to resident.

Synopsis:

This is the essential reference for the complete medical school experience, by a professional medical educator who wants students of the future to set a new standard for 21st century doctoring.

After reading Med School Rx, prospective students will understand what the admissions committees, professors, examiners and educators that stand between them and an MD are looking for, what they expect of them as future physicians, and how they can get the most out of the programs they offer.

Med School Rx also demystifies the intense learning curve of medical science and national board exams. Students are paying enormous tuition not just for more education, but for powerful career training. This book explains how students can mold their medical school education into myriad possibilities and do not have to follow the traditional path.
