Non-Traditional Medical School Applicants

CV Development and Foundation Phase 2

Many non-traditional medical applicants have very accomplished resumes with a widespread diversity of experiences in both healthcare and non-healthcare related fields. It is essential that those experiences are highlighted in the context of what a medical school review committee would deem as “competitive”. While many activities are directly applicable to the practice of medicine, many careers are not. Transitioning from a non-medical career requires creativity and a wealth of experience to create a strong applicant profile. As one can imagine, there is tremendous competition amongst mature medical school applicants for a very limited number of medical school spots.

Our diverse medical team at MedApplications™ is focused on assisting you with generating a medically-oriented CV to ensure your strong suits are highlighted as they relate to the practice of medicine.

Non-traditional medical school applicants will work closely with our seasoned medical doctors to carefully review their experiences and craft relevant transitions between their credentials and medicine. The end product is a professional and competitive CV well suited for medical school entry, research placement applications, clinical observership applications and other medically oriented activities.
