Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

As a non traditional student, I have a ton of questions about how to pursue my dream of becoming a physician and this podcast series has it all. It even discusses topics I hadn’t considered. Thanks a million for making this!!

Extremely helpful for Non-Trads

I recently began my journey of switching careers from Speech-Language Pathology to Medicine and stumbled upon this podcast earlier this year. Since finding this podcast, I have been able to gain a ton of useful information for the premed process and have been so encouraged in listening to personal stories and paths of non traditional students like myself. It’s awesome the breadth and depth of knowledge that is covered through the podcasts regarding the premed process and beyond. Very thankful to have found Dr. Gray’s material. Thank you so much for helping and encouraging those of use who are non-trads especially and giving us access to these resources!

Just WOW

I stumbled across this podcast after doing a search for premedical podcasts, and accidentally finding this podcast and Dr. Gray’s work was the BEST thing that has happened to me in my journey to medical school. As a 30-something interested in becoming a physician, I had SO many questions, and Dr. Gray has been the most informative source of information I have EVER come across. I now feel confident that I have all the information I need to successfully navigate my postbac and medical school application. I wish I would have known about Dr. Gray’s work earlier.
