Better early than . . . not early?

I am so glad to have found this resource when I did. I’m a 1st year pre-med student, and until I stumbled upon this podcast by what some would call sheer-chance (I say holy intervention), I had no clue what I was doing or what it took to get to med school. It’s a long story, but thanks to this podcast, my path is much clearer and my goals, well defined. Thanks Ryan and Allison!

Take it with a grain of salt

He gives great resources and advice, but make sure this is not your only source of premed info and direction. You’ll notice he can be semi contradictory in his tone when answering questions and he often plugs his own for sale merchandise/books. Always search for as much variety in your resources and do what’s best for you not what one person says.

Inspiring.

I knew I wanted a career change as an allied health professional, but figured I would be limited to applying to PA school due to being a non-grad and a subpar undergraduate GPA. Through this podcast, Dr Gray convinced me that becoming a physician is absolutely attainable if it’s what I want to do (and it is!). Thanks, Dr Gray.
