Once in medical school after you have got "in". Does the school not tell you what books you should read, and such? Does it not help at all? By reading some of these posts on which books are good for 3rd year med students, and such, does your school not tell you?

Does anyone have a link/links to answers for "beginner" wanna-be medical students? I mean clear down to the basics, of what these terms are, and such, even down to what you do in residency, or examples of what you do in medical school. Everything from the life of medical school, to the work once in, and the "terms, or vocabulary" of the stuff.

maybe I am stupid, but it seems some of you have ready every book in the world regarding medical school.

That blog is awesome! Thank you very much, Taus. It's very good, and very informative, and very well newbie friendly. Does anyone have anymore like this?

Wannabe,

I noticed in earlier posts that you said that you either haven't or just graduated HIGH SCHOOL. It is great that you know you want to go into medicine, BUT concentrate on going to a good college w/ a good pre-med program that you can some great recommendations from.

First of all, have fun in college...It is seriously the best time of your life (except playing Friday night football under the lights in high school). Take classes that you enjoy in college, volunteer, research (if you like it), & prepare yourself for medical school.

I would be happy to answer any other questions you might have as, I too, knew that medicine was the field I wanted to go into from even earlier than high school. PM me if you have any specific questions.

Don't buy any textbooks for medical school other than for lab manuals and board review books.

There is your advice.
