First off, many thanks to everyone who’s contributed their thoughts/ideas on my NPO project! Special S/O to the lovely Mr. cranquis who’s just been like,
Many thanks for the signal boost!!
The contributions have been amazingly helpful! I’ve seen them all, and now, per request of beyondtheoath
, I’ve created a master-post listing all of your beautiful thoughts and ideas for this project!
So why am I doing this? Well
to get straight to the point, let’s all face the fact that the struggle to become a doctor (MD/DO), or any other healthcare profession for that matter, is REAL y’all. Like,
And the number of resources for students interested in attaining a career in the healthcare industry? Well, for lack of a better word,
But what if there was a site where you can get all the help and support you need to reach them dreams of yours? And no, modernathena90
, I PROMISE you this will definitely NOT turn out to be the evil spawn of SDN. I’m talking ‘bout the MCAT, science course help (like orgo and physics), med-school applications & interview help, volunteer/shadowing/internship/research opportunities….but also a mentor-ship program linking pre-health students with med students, or even a mentor-ship program for students who are already in med school?? YES, aaall of dat!!
SO HERE’S THE COMPLETE LIST THUS FAR:
1. Free (Yes, FREE) online MCAT help.
2. Free online science-course help
3. CPR training
4. Med school application & Interview support to help you go from this:
Resources to volunteer/shadowing/internship/research opportunities. Y’all want me to hook you up with healthcare professionals willing to let you shadow them??
A free online mentor-ship program matching pre-health students to med-students, med students to med students, and maybe even pre-health/med-students to healthcare professionals. Want a buddy to help you through the stress of applying to med-school? Or if you’re already in med-school, a buddy to help mentor you through med-school? I’mma get you just that.
Support groups/Chat Rooms for those of you who need the help or want to offer help, but wanna remain anonymous (thanks, md-admissions
Fun activities like suture-practice labs. I’ve done this before, and it is sooo much fun! Pic below is mine, so don’t judge my suture skills.
9. Stress-relieving activities like puppy and kitty therapy (YES, ladykaymd and meowedschool you heard me right).
Ok, so this is something new that I thought up just recently, but who’d like a coupon for a free/discounted massage at your local spa? You know, to help relieve all that stress?
Ok, that’s it for now! If you have any other ideas/thoughts to add, please reply/reblog this post with anything you think might be fun/cute/helpful! I will definitely update you all on this every chance I get! Oh, and please keep in mind that you’re not lost. It’s all about the journey, so have fun adventuring!
