About Us

This is The Lost in PreMed Podcast where we talk about everything from course work and GPA to the MCAT, volunteering, shadowing and anything else you may encounter on your premed journey.I’ll talk about some of the experiences that I have had as a nontraditional student and I’ll also share some of the lessons that I have learned over the past 10 years, while working in exciting emergency medicine.From time to time I like to bring in other premed undergrads, medical students, residents and even attendings and let them share their stories and insights that they have learned about the world of medicine.I take all this, bundle it up and put it all in a nice little podcast, all in hopes of softening the masochism that is the journey to medical school.

...and NOBODY will stop me!

A few episodes back I had talked about an experience I had during my 3rd year of medical school that really changed my mindset while going through clinicals. This episode is going to expand on exactly what went through my mind while I was sitting on the subway and how the absolute worst increment of time during undergrad ended up getting through one of my toughest times in medical school.

Rough roads and difficult situations sometimes make you question if you have what it takes to climb that mountain that is ahead. But, regardless of how arduous the journey, experiences of confirmation can give you the push that you need to keep climbing. This is one of my stories and one of my experiences.

Life in the Peds ER

Snot, sutures and dirty diapers. Who in their right mind would sign up for such a thing?!?! Well...me! I did. Because I know that I am going to have to deal with little ones and their germs for the rest of my career, I decided to take a Peds EM elective so that I could be more comfortable dealing with them as patients. With 3 weeks already completed, I'll talk about some of the insights that I have gained, as well as some key pointers that I will be able to take with me in future rotations.

He also talks about his favorite rotation so far and some of his adventures while going through a grueling surgery schedule. He also has a few good tips that may benefit premed students on their way to medical school.

The Most Important Episode I Will Ever Record

Mental health and depression are heavy topics and they can happen to anyone. With unrelenting pressure to succeed and always be the best, premeds, med students and even residents are not immune to the dark spiral that can easily cause one to slip into depression.

The Most Important Episode I Will Ever Record

15 minutes = 24 hours; Change My Mind

In my 2nd (or 3rd) semester of med school I was at a workshop that talked about time management and study skills. I'd heard most of it before, but there was one thing that heavily impacted my studying. I'm going to talk about the potential magnitude of picking up your phone "just for a minute" while studying and what those ripples can translate to when it comes time for finals.

Embrace the Suck!

I have finally made it to my 4th year of med school and I am loving every minute of it. Unfortunately, that wasn't always the case. There have been moments where I was worn thin and pushed to my limits. In this episode, I share an experience that completely changed my outlook on my clinical experience and it has made a world of difference.
