Where to Begin

Deciding to become a doctor or other health professional is a big decision. It requires a lot of commitment and many years of training.

Learn if you are truly interested in a health career by gaining exposure to the medical field.

If you have explored the field and know you want to apply, make yourself a strong candidate. Medical schools want students with excellent personal qualities and academic achievements.
