Freshman Year:

  • Gather information about yourself, about careers in medicine and other health careers, and about the years of education and training required for each career so you can make the right decision about your future.
  • Start building an excellent undergraduate record. Review your performance early in the semester and take corrective steps to improve any deficiencies.
  • Explore your areas of interest while enrolled in at least one science course. Choose a balance and diversified course of study.
  • Try to develop a personal relationship with at least one faculty member whose interests are similar to yours and who stimulates you intellectually.
  • Participate in selected extracurricular activities to complement your program and provide some enjoyable diversion.
  • If possible, try to involve yourself with some volunteer work in a medically-related area.
