I am preparing to start medical school in the fall of this year. Recently, I have had coworkers to approach me about a wishlist of things that I could use for medical school. I have a partial list but I would appreciate any suggestions that any of you seasoned members may have.

Thanks in advance for your help :)

A cappucino machine. It'll save you at LEAST $5/day if you're addicted to Starbucks.

i second that, i spend too much money on liquid crack.

if you don't have one, maybe they can get you a stethoscope, but research it a little and tell them EXACTLY the one you want, especially if they aren't clinically inclined

PurposeDriven: What are some of the other things on your list, if you don't mind me asking?

My birthday was in April, but I asked everyone to hold off on giving me gifts until I knew what I'd need for med school. They're starting to ask me for ideas now, so if there are some easy things that're fine to get ahead of time that'd be great. Otherwise I'll just ask them to hold off until I start in mid-August.

A car, especially if you live in the middle of nowhere.

WOW! $450!! I paid like $225 through the Navy Exchange Store (no tax). It was on sale from 3-something... I wouldn't pay that much for it either, but as I have given up my bike for med school I felt better by getting the cycling fans espresso machine. :D

Agreed. This is a great asset and will save you around 100-150. Will you need an otoscope?

My list goes something like this..

1. Stethoscope
2. PDA
3. Large Dry Erase board ( personal preferance :oops: )
4. Laptop
I don't need a PDA until MSIII, so I won't get one for MSI, but otherwise, this is my list. I can't tell you how many times I had to write things out for me to understand them while studying.
