Planning a Life in Medicine: Discover If a Medical Career Is Right for You and Learn How to Make It Happen by Princeton Review, John Smart, Stephen Nelson, Julie Doherty

A life in medicine is something that many dream of but few achieve. The tests students face–both literal and figurative–just to get into medical school are designed to weed out the weak. In Planning a Life in Medicine, the experts at The Princeton Review help you succeed in a premedical program, score higher on the MCAT, meet the challenges of medical school, and ultimately flourish in your medical career.

More than just a comprehensive plan for getting into medical school, Planning a Life in Medicine is a handbook that will help you to cultivate the skills and habits–such as compartmentalizing knowledge and improving concentration–that will help you along your “path of heart” and serve you well throughout your education and medical career.

About the Author

The experts at The Princeton Review have been helping students, parents, and educators achieve the best results at every stage of the education process since 1981. In addition to helping millions succeed on standardized tests, The Princeton Review provides expert advice and instruction to help parents, teachers, students, and schools navigate the complexities of school admission. Along with classroom courses in over 40 states and 20 countries, The Princeton Review also offers online and school-based courses, one-to-one and small-group tutoring, and online services in both admission counseling and academic homework help.

John Smart, MS, cofounder and CEO of Hyperlearning and cocreator of the Hyperlearning MCAT program, was Hyperlearning’s medical school admissions director, responsible for counseling approximately 3,000 premedical students at five University of California schools. His materials, advice, and seminars have been widely used within the California premedical community since 1990 and have aided in the successful admission of a strong majority of Hyperlearning students. He is the president of the educational nonprofit Acceleration Studies Foundation that helps executives better understand and manage accelerating technological change. 

Stephen Nelson Jr, MD, PhD, obtained his doctorate in biomedical sciences with an emphasis on radiation-induced mutations in 1996 from the University of California, Riverside. He has taught MCAT preparation courses for Hyperlearning and the Princeton Review as a senior biology instructor and coauthored the biology review notes for Hyperlearning’s acclaimed MCAT preparation system. He also works as a pediatrician and is involved in teaching residents and medical students the art of pediatric medicine.

Julie Doherty graduated from Stanford University in 1998 with a degree in English. She worked as a writer and editor for various tech companies in San Francisco, then spent several years in Mexico, where she worked as a preschool teacher, traveled extensively, and wrote for a variety of publications on a freelance basis, including the Best Colleges series produced by The Princeton Review.
