  1. Placements for Medical Students

  2. Getting the Most From of Your MCAT This exam consists of four sections, each of which are scored between 118 and 132. The perfect MCAT score is a 132 across all four sections for a total score of 528. A look at the current percentile ranks for the MCAT exam, it is seen that this is not an easy feat. Even less than 1% of all students receive a 132 on any given section of the exam. A 132 score in all four sections is very much unlikely.

  3. 5 Things to Remember for Your First Clinical Placement So after finishing your first term of classes and you must have been assigned your first clinical placement.

Make a habit of making notes everyday Keeping a note of everything from the patients you meet, the procedures or treatments you helped with, and even how your day was, will help you get the most of your experience.
