Tuesday, November 18, 2008 – Making It Through Med School:
For students trying to get into medical school there are concerns about grades, test scores and acceptance letters. For Native students, the worries keep piling up after they are accepted. For students coming from a tribal community, the transition to the cities where many med schools are located can be unsettling. Native Americans are underrepresented in the medical profession. Does that put extra pressure on students looking to tack that “MD” onto the end of their name? Invited guests include Donovan Williams (Navajo), President-elect, Association of American Indian Medical Students.
