Am I ready for a career in Medicine?

To help you determine your readiness, you can use the Core Personal Competencies for Entering Medical Students developed by the American Associate of Medical Colleges (AAMC).

While going through each of these competencies, ask yourself:  Can I give several examples of the knowledge and skills I have learned and how I have applied my knowledge for EACH competency?

Your responses will help you assess your readiness to apply to medical school and identify the areas for further development. If you are ready, we encourage you to apply to UVM!
