University of Michigan-Flint Premedical Studies
Everyone needs advice—get a mentor. Students in any field of study benefit greatly from mentorships with professionals in such fields. Likewise, students with medical aspirations should strongly consider finding mentors in the medical field; they will help you navigate the process with expertise and help you, with their experience as a guide, consider options. It is also a good idea to develop professional relationships with your professors—professionals in your major fields—inside and outside the classroom. That said, mentors will not always be who or what you expect—some mentors introduce you to other mentors, and some mentors come from unexpected places.
