New Med School Podcast Addresses Application Stress
A new podcast launched by the University of Minnesota Medical School's Office of Admissions is aiming to help students navigate the stressful task of applying to medical school. The first episode, called, "Represented in Medicine" was released last month.
“We came into this podcast wanting to make the voices heard of students and physicians and everyone in the healthcare field who at one time might have felt underrepresented in medicine,” said the podcast’s co-host and Admissions Coordinator Rachel Rudeen.
