  • Making Time for Fun

  • Created December 1, 2016 by Amy Rakowczyk
  • For many student spouses, medical school can seem like a time “in limbo.” You are waiting for something, but not quite sure for what.

  • Created November 25, 2016 by Short Coat Podcast
  • The crew–John Pienta, Marc Toral, Dylan Todd and new guy Jay Blomme–were lucky enough to hear from a couple listeners about our recent post-presidential election episode.  For instance, Kayla called 347-SHORTCT to say thanks; we presume she had more to say, but she got cut off.  We continue our discussions on logic and logical errors,...VIEW >

  • True Pass-Fail Curriculum: Key to Learning and Collegiality

  • Created November 23, 2016 by Cassie Kosarek
  • Republished with permission from here. Being a pre-medical student is largely about the numbers — your MCAT score, your rank in your graduating college class, whether that subpar performance in organic chemistry will lethally impact your medical school application. If you’re anything like me, your time as a pre-med was spent encapsulated in a crippling...VIEW >
