Preparation for College and Med School

<p>I'm a high school junior interested in radiology. I understand the long process and work involved in the field. What should I start doing now and what steps should I take in college to pursue this career and enter into medical school?</p>

<p>Your goal right now is to study hard, learn the material well, and do well on your SATs. Apply to college sensibly, get into a school that you like and which provides you with good opportunities. Don't worry about anything besides being a high school student for now.</p>

<p>As for college, the Pre-med Topics Forum has a set of good threads on the subject. Start with the "FAQs" thread.</p>

<p>Some other helpful sites:
AAMC:</a> Considering a Medical Career - The "official" site.
Alex's</a> Illicit Guide to Medical School Admissions: a Trusted Source for Premed Students - This is a little outdated, but a good site anyways.
Pre-Med</a> Manual - You'll find some good information here!
Student</a> Doctor Network Forums - A great online community for doctors or future doctors. If you do create an account, please put "Carissa" as your referrer.</p>

<p>Basically, just look around CC and you'll find soooo much insight!</p>
