So You Want to Be a Doctor?

Originally developed in 1994, "So You Want To Be A Doctor" serves as a guide to gaining acceptance into both allopathic and osteopathic medical schools across the country. This SNMA publication focuses on information concerning the pre-medical curriculum, deciding where to apply to medical school, MCAT preparation, the application process, developing a personal statement, obtaining letters of recommendation, interviewing, combined degree programs, post-baccalaureate programs, and minority enrollment statistics.

In addition, the booklet has a timeline for applicants, resource guides on financing a pre-medical and medical education and guidance for those who are not accepted into the program of their choice during the initial application process. This publication is provided free of charge to SNMA pre-medical members as part of their membership package. For the past several years, printing of this publications has been provided by the American Association of Medical Colleges.
