SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello SDN! Could you please give me some career advice? I graduated a year ago as a biochemistry major with a 3.95+ GPA (science/nonscience/BCPM). I've been working as a research associate at a biotech firm since then. During my senior year of college, I volunteered at a nearby hospital and I enjoyed working with patients. For the past year, I've also been volunteering at a hospice on the side as I'm working full time. I think by now I have around 300 hours of volunteering with patient interaction. I enjoy working with patients more than in a lab so now I think I want to pursue medicine. I've shadowed primary care physicians and an EM physician for around 60 hours now. Would medicine be considered a feasible career for me even if I wasn't a premed in college? I remember my old classmates scored in the mid-30s on the MCATs and I'm confident I can do the same. Am I ready to take the MCATs and apply this summer or is there something else I should do before I apply? Thank you!
