Foreign trained doctors
Why does our country and medical system allow foreign trained doctors to practice and do residency in the US? I understand that the more doctors the better the health-care and competition is good; but, I have already rotated with 2 doctors who did medical school in Europe FOR FREE....so they literally get their "degree" and come into the country and start making the same revenues and income without the debt/investment compared to US trained (who likely starts with $200k debt). See this with... Foreign trained doctors (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Former Professional Soccer Player ...cGPA 3.4
Hi everyone! 26 year old nontraditional student here. Graduated from a 4 year university back in 2013 with a double major in Economics and International Business. After graduating I played professional soccer for a couple years. Unfortunately that got cut short due to injuries. I now own my own business, a restaurant, and am doing well. Over the last year, especially due to my soccer related injuries, I've really developed an interest for the health care world and medicine. After taking...

Yale vs. Columbia vs. Northwestern
Hello, everyone. I'm currently trying to decide between Yale, Columbia, and Northwestern. I'm leaning more toward Yale or Columbia, but I'm having some difficulty in choosing. I don't have any financial aid information yet, but I'm hoping to have these schools sorted into some sort of ranking so that I can make the most holistic (I will never escape this word) choice possible. I am extremely interested in health care policy/business, as well as writing within and about medicine. Without... Yale vs. Columbia vs. Northwestern (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Whoot! Whoot! Whoot! Whoot! Clearwater school breaks ground
Mar 7, 2018 The 27-acre Clearwater site where Nova Southeastern University is building a new medical school is little more than dirt now, but within 20 months it is expected to be home to the school’s 325,000-square-foot Tampa Bay regional campus, and the Dr. Kiran C.

The regents also approved a new dean position and increased admissions for the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, as well as a branch campus in partnership with the Cherokee Nation.

Bill proposes mental health exception in felony battery law
What are your thoughts on this? To me, as an inpatient psychiatrist, I would not want my state to provide such an exception to felony assault on a health care worker. The majority of the time charges are pressed for assault it's because of Axis II pathology where the patient has the ability to control themselves but chooses not to do so. Patients in crisis can become felons under battery... Bill proposes mental health exception in felony battery law (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Moving to Boston, stay with Walgreen or take a new job?
I am in CA, working at Walgreens for 5 years, just got an offer for an MTM Rph position at a major insurance company (still doing background check, hasn’t told Walgreens yet). My husband yesterday got an offer (non health care related) at Boston and he will take it, and move there first. Our plan is to move to Boston in summer, before schools start. Should I stay with Walgreens and transfer to Boston district? Or take the MTM job then look for new job later? My dilemma is that I don’t know...

Nursing vs pharmacy school
Hi guys, I'm a 4th year Canadian university student graduating this year. I will have a Chemistry degree. I chose Chemistry based on interest but I know that the job prospects in this field is not great (Nursing and Pharmacy are better) and there aren't a lot of demand for chemists. I've also always wanted to work in health care so I kind of regret taking Chemistry in the first place. I've decided to go into either a Pharmacy or Nursing school but I'm having a difficult time choosing... Nursing vs pharmacy school (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Medical School for the non-traditional applicant - w/o all prerequisites
I have wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. I was constantly deterred from pursuing this while in college from family members and friends and ultimately decided against pursuing it. However, everything brings me back to it which is why, despite pushback, I am pursuing it. Long story short - I graduated undergrad a few years ago with a behavior science degree in health care management and I have an MBA. I have completed classes such as bio 1 & 2, cell biology and statistics,... Medical School for the non-traditional applicant - w/o all prerequisites (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Attending dream school's Continuing Medical Education event?
Hey SDN, My dream DO school is having a CME event in a few weeks. Not far from where I live, isn't expensive. Subject matter is interesting to me. Would it be weird if I went? States explicitly it is for "Osteopaths and other Health Care Professionals," while I'm just a lowly radiology/ED PCA increasing my clinical hours to apply for the first time this cycle. I guess I'm wondering if it would be inappropriate if I attended If not, would this be a positive thing for showing this school... Attending dream school's Continuing Medical Education event?
