THE ULTIMATE MEDICAL GIFT GUIDE: STUDENTS, RESIDENTS, DOCTORS, NURSES, PAs & BEYOND

A SIMPLIFIED DIAGRAM OF THE PATHWAY THROUGH MEDICINE

Hello friends! It’s been a while since I’ve written a text post – blog style –  instead of making a video. I was asked via Twitter to explain the pathway of medical school in the USA.

I have always wished there was a comprehensive infographic out there that I could simply hand over to anyone asking. This morning (let’s be honest, I was totally procrastinating) I decided to draw one up for myself, and for all of you out there who have been waiting for the same thing! Below is the JPG format, but if you would like to download a PDF copy, click here. Enjoy!
