College Student Approved Podcast

This podcast, and others out created by Dr. Gray, are amazing. I am an advocate supporter of always learning something new, especially if it's free. I love that the podcasts have a wide variety of topics and contributors. As a non-traditional college student looking towards a career in medicine, I can't thank you enough Dr Gray, and all of your contributors for hosting this informative outlet.

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.
