    [–] Student in allied health profession thinking about switching to pre-med. zSolars 2 points ago in premed

    No problem! Feel free to message me with any more questions. Applying with a background like this certainly makes you stand out but it can be used as an extremely positive experience :) best of luck!

    I think you’ll be well prepared for anatomy, which is also a big challenged from what I hear. Ultimately I realized pharmacy wouldn’t have the opportunities I came to desire later in school and I would rather have a larger role in diagnosing/performing procedures. I also personally found pharmacy to be boring in the hospital. I’d rather be happy and busy than bored with more free time. (I admit some pharmacists will disagree with this but it’s my view haha)

    So my program is 6 years from freshman year to PharmD. By the end of year 3 I was pretty sure it wasn’t for me and I wanted to try for med school. I can’t comment on PT of course, but I don’t think anything could have better prepared me for med school. I’m now well versed in pharmacology which is a tough topic and I’ve been exposed to anatomy and pathophysiology. I feel much more prepared than a typical undergrad since I’ve already nearly finished a challenging graduate level program. If I could go back to high school, I don’t think I’d have changed what I did.

    About to graduate with my PharmD and planning to attend medical school here. First, I would shadow as many areas in PT as you can. For me, I wanted to make sure there really was no area in pharmacy that I could see myself in before changing my path. Then, keep shadowing physicians and try to find someone that went PT to MD to see what they think. I was able to talk to a few MD/PharmDs that helped me make my decision. I am not sure how long PT school is, but I would NOT QUIT. Finish your program and then apply to med school. Quitting may reflect poorly, and med school is a low-yield endeavor. I would hang on to this sure thing for now, and if you reach the end still wanting to pursue an MD, go for it. Worst case scenario, you have a good backup plan if you do not get accepted rather than a relatively worthless pre-PT degree.

    [–] Anyone else here wants to do medicine but is afraid what if it's not the right career for you? zSolars 6 points ago in premed

    At the end of the day, you’ll never be 100% sure until you are an attending just doing your job. It’s hard, but shadowing and viewing medicine being practiced will only tell you so much. However, that’s okay. All we can do is research and make an educated decision on where we want to be in life.

    [–] What role do PAs play in research? zSolars 3 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    It varies on the program. I know the one I am attending had an above average focus on research, but some are completely indifferent. I would explore the website and see what they say. I have met a few PAs that help with research, but they generally do it as part of a large team of clinicians rather than leading research.

    It’s probably just as true for nursing, from what I’ve seen them deal with

    [–] Cringiest interview experiences? zSolars 7 points ago in premed

    One person talked about his divorce, discussed mass shootings, and tried to prove the dean of admissions lied about something based on what he read on SDN. He also called me out for being quiet in front of everyone which I personally got annoyed by (I know I’m quiet, way to remind me). One of the current students in the group when he said all of this turned to me and gave me the most uncomfortable look. At least I got in and he didn’t. Justice!

    [–] Did adcoms reply when you sent a thank you for interview email? zSolars 2 points ago in premed

    Exactly! I was just clarifying in case you were actually curious what it meant

    ND is the “degree” for a naturopath. Aka alternative medicine (here, eat this root)
