USU Health Professions Advising Canvas Page

Preparing for medical school is not easy, however, for students who are disciplined, proactive, and committed, it is a completely achievable goal. The single most important thing you need to do to be prepared for medical school applications is to be a unique, well-rounded individual with meaningful life experience. You will also need to work diligently to build a strong science foundation. You should continually pursue your own interests, whether it is athletics, research, music, service, etc. These activities, and what you learn from participating, will be what makes you unique. These Canvas courses are general outlines to help you be ready to apply.
