For all underclassmen out there that still have room in your schedules for some classes....TAKE CLASSES IN HEALTH POLICY! I did, and every interview I have gone to has commented on them and asked me stuff about health care in other countries, problems with the US system, etc. and they have been totally impressed that I know something about the payment system in the US is structured, some of the problems, and that I can pull a few stats out in the interview. They aren't the most interesting classes, but they are so worth taking, and if you're planning on being a doctor, you damn better well know what you're going to be dealing with. I've also found that med schools are sick of idealists (I just wanna help people and being a doctor is such a rewarding profession all the time!) and they want people that know a thing or two about HMOs, Medicare, and stuff like that. DO IT! You won't regret it!
