This course provides a unique perspective on the medical school process, as the creator is currently a medical student and just recently completed the application process. Most courses are designed by physicians or medical school admissions personnel. While their perspectives are worthwhile and valid, physicians have not gone through the application process in quite some time and admissions personnel may have never gone through the process. The value of the author’s perspective is derived from his recent exposure to numerous medical school’s application processes. He is able to provide a detailed and insightful take on the application process and what it takes to be successful because his experiences are still fresh in his memory.

About the author: Ernie Morton is currently a medical student who had to learn much of the information regarding medical school admissions the hard way. As a pre-med student, Ernie struggled to find comprehensive and concise information regarding the application process. It is his goal to help pre-med students understand the medical school application process, make the most of their time during undergraduate years, and increase their chances for admittance.
