How to Choose a Medical School

Things I wish I knew before entering med school.

Guanghua Building at Fudan University, Shanghai, China. Taken in spring 2015.

1. Ask yourself: Which country do I want to practice medicine in the future? 🌏

2. If it is impossible to enroll into a medical school in your desired country, are you keen to spend your university years away from home? ✈️

“He who studies medicine without books sails an uncharted sea, but he who studies medicine without patients does not go to sea at all.”

3. Ensure the medical school is registered in the World Directory 📑

4. Do you know anyone who has attended the university? Where are they now? 💭
