The pre-medical path is not for the faint of heart - the time commitment alone is usually a decade or more! If you’re considering this path, you probably have a lot of questions.

Join Yesh and Shravya as they discuss their personal pre-medical journeys, including the process, what they wish they knew beforehand, and common pitfalls. The chat will be open to any and all questions, so feel free to throw in your inquiries and make this session interactive!

Pop in to ask a few questions or stay for the whole stream to learn all about being pre-med from two of our in-house pre-med experts!
