Re: Resumes

You are able to ask student affairs to provide some examples from the past and that might help. Im not entirely sure how it works for med school but this resource might be useful:

Malpractice

Have you ever witnessed any forms of malpractice/mistreatment during your visits or hospital visits?

Personally, I havent. Closest thing was a patient getting ignored about the room's temperature- which I guess kinda is mistreatment.

Re: What other jobs are you aiming for in the medical field?

Personally I'd say cardiac surgeon- although id have to wait 10+ years to make my mind up. Usually people decide towards the end of medschool and you cant really form a concrete opinion before that.

There are so many symptoms for many overlapping diseases which would cause mis-self diagnosing. Plus, its nearly always required for a...

Re: It's happening, there will be pills to fight off covid

Although I think healthcare should be free, I dont think theres much hope over the next years- especially with the pandemic. On the side of the pill, I doubt people would trust a company that is not towards the top. Heck, people were even skeptical about the Pfitzer vaccine; now imagine this.

Re: What classes look best on your record for college?

Not really. Health classes are usually PE/gym and so they dont really have an impact. I would personally say the best classes to take are STEM-aim for honors and APs. Usually the health classes youre referring to dont even have a creditor of one and dont extend beyond a semester.
