Starting a medical program in the summer can be an exciting and challenging experience, so here are a few tips to help get you started:

  1. Research The Program.  Before you begin, make sure you have a clear understanding of the program requirements, curriculum, and any prerequisites.  This will help you prepare and know what to expect. At the Allen School of Health Sciences, we have dedicated advisors to assist you in learning about our medical programs and answer all of your questions.
  2. Know Your Basics.  Brush up on your foundational knowledge in subjects such as phlebotomy, chemistry, and anatomy.  This will help you feel more confident and prepared for the coursework.
  3. Get Organized.  Create a study schedule and plan your time effectively.  Medical programs can be demanding, so staying organized will help you stay on top of your coursework and assignments.
  4. Seek Support.  Connect with fellow students who are also starting the program.  Having a support system can make a significant difference in managing the workload and sharing resources.
  5. Stay Motivated.  Remember why you chose to pursue a medical program and keep that motivation in mind when things get challenging. Stay focused on your goals and celebrate your achievements along the way.
  6. Take Care Of Yourself.  Self-care is crucial during a demanding program.  Make sure to prioritize your physical and mental well-being by getting enough sleep, eating nutritious meals, and taking breaks when needed.
  7. Utilize Resources.  Take advantage of any resources provided by the program such as study guides, tutoring services, or online materials. At the Allen School of Health Sciences, our career service team is here to assist students while they are in school and after they graduate from our programs. These resources can help you excel in your studies.
  8. Build Professional Relationships.  Network with professors, mentors, and professionals in the medical field.  Building these connections can open doors to valuable opportunities, such as internships or research opportunities.
  9. Stay Curious And Engaged.  Keep an open mind and be eager to learn; Ask questions, participate in discussions, and take advantage of any hand-on learning experiences offered by the program.
  10. Enjoy The Journey.  Starting a medical program is a significant milestone in your educational and professional journey.  Embrace the challenges and enjoy the process of learning and growing in your chosen field.
