By Ryan Gray, MD of Meded Media

The Premed Years is an extension of MedicalSchoolHQ.net.

With interviews with deans of medical schools, chats with trusted, valuable advisors and up-to-date news, The Premed Years and MedicalSchoolHQ.net are the goto resources for all things related to the path to medical school. We are here to help you figure out the medical school requirements. We will show you how to answer the hard questions during your medical school interviews. What is a good MCAT Score? What is the best MCAT Prep? What the heck is the AMCAS? What is the best undergraduate program? What is medical school like? What so you do to volunteer and shadow? Get your questions answered here.
