Adversity/resilience topic
Thank you for reading. Maybe I haven't thought about it hard enough, but I feel I haven't faced too much adversity in my life. I'm very grateful for this except for now, having to answer the adversity/resilience question. I'm considering writing about transferring twice, once mid pandemic, and how I had to adapt to three different schools and start from scratch learning each system/location and meeting new people. It'd also explain why I'm submitting transcripts from four schools I... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Statement of purpose for a preceptorship
Hi there. I am writing a statement of purpose for a preceptorship program in a dental specialty. This program will not provide any direct patient contact nor will it give me any qualification to practice this specialty. It would allow me to observe specialist students providing treatment and allow me to learn the didactic curriculum that a specialist student would be exposed to. In my statement of purpose, would it be wrong for me to say that one of the reasons I want to undertake the... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

EM & Medicine - Plans to take today
Reading the 555 thread has many/mostly truths, some conjecture, but overall EM and medicine in general are all going downhill. As Rekt stated, it is not if you will go down but what view you have on the way down. What seat may be debatable but if you ask the fore fathers in your field, I suspect they will tell you that the plane is going down. As the plane is/will go down during your career, best to learn to fly the plan for a soft landing. My first 15 attending years was a nice smooth... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Insight Needed on Maryland and USC: Board Preparedness, Matching into Military OMFS, etc.
I apologize in advance for the series of questions. 1. I am aware that this is a very premature question to ask for an incoming D1, but I read from multiple threads that ranking/GPA and CBSE both play a role in matching into military OMFS (full ride thanks to hpsp). 2. I am open to the PBL curriculum at USC, yet could it entail that more self-studying will be involved for CBSE compared to students at UMD where they learn through lectures? I don’t want to suffer from potential knowledge... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

PI said I can work on summer research project -- virtually?
What to do? I'd like to work on summer research in person with a PI. This is so that I can get a LOR and also learn better. However, the PI said I can work on a summer research project, on a review paper, but virtually. What should I tell him? Should I accept? Thank you so much! (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Referred to ABLE MSUCHM
After interviewing with Michigan State University College of Human Medicine I was referred to the Advanced Baccalaureate Learning Experience (ABLE) postbaccalaureate program and was told that it is recommended rather than direct admission. I was told the program has direct admission upon completion and that the program director will reach out to get more information from me. The final decision will be made in June 2023. I was also told that referral to the ABLE program does not guarantee... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Psychology Doctorate at 40
Hi all, I'm new here, so sorry if this violates any rules. I wanted to ask a few questions about pursuing a clinical psychology PhD/PsyD as a career changer. I'm turning 37 this year, and I currently work as a data analyst doing machine learning and mathematical modeling for a large corporation. I really can't see myself doing something similar for another ~30 years, and I'm considering a second career in a helping profession like psychology. I'm aware this is not a good financial move...

Lecture set up
I’m waitlisted for 2 schools this cycle but that was pretty expected as I decided on vet med my senior year of undergrad. Now that I have more time to look further into schools before applying again I was looking to reach out to current students on how lectures are set up. I went to the open house at Virginia Maryland last year and they said that the students stay in the same classroom all day and the professors rotate. Is this a common way of learning in vet school or do other schools have... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)
