As a high school student interested in becoming a physician, there are two main paths you can take.
The conventional route for successful matriculation into medical school involves academic excellence in an undergraduate university, exemplification of your own personal development, demonstrating an understanding of the psychosocial and medical complexities of clinical work, scholarly extra curricular activities such as scientific research projects, and most importantly showing an appreciation and respect for the leadership and altruism that is the backbone of medicine.
The alternative route starts while in high school, where the various aspects just reviewed have not only been started, but have also been exemplified. For some students the combined BS|MD programs might be a path worth pursuing.
