OldPreMeds Podcast

By Ryan Gray

The National Society for Nontraditional Premedical & Medical Students, Inc., better known by our website name, OldPreMeds.org or simply OPM, is a professional/pre-professional society and educational conduit for non-traditional students who seek to become Physicians. For those whose path to medicine is not the traditional high school to college to medical school, OPM's mission is to assist and advise on how to successfully prepare, apply, and succeed in both medical schools and residency training programs. Founded in 1998, our now over 10,000 registered members span from the very early premed through attending-level physicians. Many are enrolled or have graduated from medical schools, osteopathic programs, and other clinical health fields, here in the US as well as abroad. www.OldPreMeds.org, is a website community built upon peer-based forums providing resources for all levels of premedical students, medical students, medical residents, pre-health advisors, admissions officers, and other faculty & staff at undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, medical, and post-graduate programs.
