Classes have just started again at the college, and that means a new class of students has joined us for what promises to be a whirlwind of a semester. Over the next few weeks, students will be adjusting to the new demands placed on them by this intense experience we call medical school. We’ll hear from some first years, who we caught up with during the college’s Annual Student Organization Fair, about their concerns about their new lives. Then, we’ll take note of the sizable portion of medical students who might not have studied the sciences before. How will they get through the massive amounts of very unfamiliar information heaped upon them? We gathered together a group of these so-called non-traditional students to talk about their experiences coming into medical school. Finally, we’ll hear a new feature on the show—the Medical Student Government update. Photo by Rosefirerising
