I am in my junior year, and have not really thought about being a doctor until an anatomy class I took. I do not have much health care research experience (in 7th/8th grades won awards at state for antibacterial research), nor do I have any health field experience (worked designing websites in past). However, I do get straight A's, and have received several college credits already in chem/computer science. I am also involved in many clubs with leadership positions, and I have played varsity soccer and track for 3 years.
Do you think it would be possible for me to get into a BS/MD program? If so, which ones? And do you know any research camps I could apply for to get some experience? How much hospital volunteering do you need? Is there anything else I could do to better my chances?
