One of the best ways to stand out as a medical student applicant is by participating in research studies or performing your own research. Of course, presenting or being published is usually what people are after, and being part of a major university study increases your chances of being published or swept off to a fancy conference. Accepted.com has just posted an exhaustive list of some of the best research programs available to undergraduate students. These programs are all 6-12 weeks and many provide a nice stipend and/or living arrangements.
For me, this time of year is usually when I start getting those dreaded password-expiration notices. For many of us, we us multiple EMRs, hospital computer systems, emails, list servs, and online course catalogs, each with a different username and password requirement. To keep all your passwords in line, try some of these tips I use. It might prevent you from resorting to a sticky note!
3. Create a throwaway account: For many apps and sites, creating an account is merely a formality. For these sites, I recommend using a secondary email account and basic password, since this will not include your credit card information or other personal info, I am usually less concerned with the possibility of that password being found.
Accepted.com is a site that provides Admissions Consultation for pre-med, pre-law, MBA, and grad school students. They also have a blog with great content.
Next Tuesday, October 29th at 5pm PST (8pm for us East Coasters), Accepted is hosting a Webinar on the Multiple Mini Interview, which is a technique use by many medical schools to screen potential students. If you haven't interviewed yet, I highly recommend checking out the Webinar and Accepted's website for some great tips on making the most of an intensive interview method, and to keep away from it's pitfalls.
It happens all the time, and if you hang out with runners long enough, you'll hear about it; "I was going to run race X, but then I got hurt 4 weeks into my training... I was looking great, planning on a PR, but my IT band started acting up again..."
Runners (and med students, for that matter) are highly motivated individuals. They push themselves to run longer and faster, and rarely are able to see an injury until it stops them in their tracks.

For many people, the idea of going to med school sounds like a ton of work that they could never possibly succeed at. Others say the same thing about running a half-marathon. Here's a plan I put together so that people struggling with getting all their studying done can still do both.
Originally, this was made for students volunteering in the Medals for Mettle program, while pairs medical students up with a child battling cancer. Through their training for a 13.1 mile race, the students learn about the struggles their child goes through just to lead a relatively normal life.
