If you want to pursue a career in medicine, prepare yourself by
learning the self-discipline to concentrate on schoolwork in high
school in order to achieve the grades necessary to gain entrance to
a good undergraduate program. Performing well at the college level
can help you compete for slots in medical school. Start working
hard in high school by taking college preparatory classes such as
mathematics, including algebra and geometry, and sciences,
including biology, chemistry, and physics. Also, consider taking a
foreign language. Many college programs have foreign language
requirements, and a familiarity with some foreign languages may
help you with your medical studies later on. Finally, don't forget
to take English courses. These classes will help you develop your
research and writing skills-two skills that will be essential to
you in your career.
