Medical student social media tips as an AAMC motivational story

I’d like to thank the Association of American Medical Colleges for profiling me as one of their motivational stories.  It’s an honor.

Here are some of the questions and topics I address:

  • Please describe your typical work day and what it’s like to balance your career as a physician and a blogger.
  • What advice do you have for medical school applicants when it comes to using social media?
  • Why did you choose to go in to primary care?
  • Please describe your participation in special programs such as volunteer work, research, or study-abroad opportunities during medical school or residency.
  • What advice do you have for new applicants considering a career in medicine?

Thanks for reading, and I hope these tips are useful for both medical students and prospective medical school applicants.
