Choosing a Medical School

When deciding which medical schools to apply to, you will need to do a substantial amount of research. Each medical school in the U.S. has a different set of requirements for admission. As it is likely you will not be accepted to the first school you apply to, you should select several schools that you are interested in.

You should also prepare yourself with an understanding of both allopathic and osteopathic medicine. You will most likely study and work with both fields. You can learn a bit about both on these pages.
