    What is the lifestyle like for HSPS Army doctors after finishing residency?

    So I scored pretty low on COMLEX 1 (under 500) and was wondering if I should bust my butt during my third year and take Step 1 to make up for it (which is extremely difficult in itself) or if I should just focus on COMLEX 2 and try and do really well on it. Say I get upper 500s or above, will...

    Pediatrics PT Observation Hours

    I'm in the process of obtaining more hours in a new setting for PT observation, but I'm not sure which to choose for pediatrics? There's one that is hospital based another that is outpatient, out of the two which would look better on an application for school?
