Tagged: depression and suicidal thoughts in medical school
We just blogged about the prevalence of depression and suicidal thoughts in the first three years of medical school. We wanted to provide this space if you want to share your thoughts, questions or concerns.
Best of luck with your applications!

Work really really hard to get into medical school. Then realize there is a lot more hard work ahead of you. IMO, admitted students should be encouraged to take a low key gap year to reeset.
We just posted a blog about an op-ed from the Dean at Weill Cornell Medicine that addresses the issue of medical school burnout. We believe it’s worth the quick read.
