According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, med school applicants and enrollments improved at a record pace in 2014. This means more competition for you as a potential med school applicant.
With this in mind, you’re going to need to dazzle admissions if you’re going to be accepted to the program of your choice. One of the best ways to do so is to create a stellar, flawless resume – here are eight ways to do so.
When you engage in research, participate with vigor until the project is complete. You’ll have an advantage over the competition, as admissions departments love to see such experience, especially if you can detail the results. Mention the lab by name, the professor you worked under, a summary of the scope of the research, and any key results.
Remember, grammar and presentation count, so don’t forget to proofread your resume, and don’t fail to solicit the opinions of others, especially former teachers. That person could be a valuable resource to review your resume and increase your chances of getting into med school. Always be detail-oriented and thorough, and you are sure to impress.
