The Medical School Podcast

By Danny Sullivan
In this podcast, I interview people who have excelled in medical school, pre-med, and residency. We dive deep into their story, and I ask what they know now that they wish they would have known during pre-med, medical school, and residency. Their personal stories will inspire you, and their advice will help you dominate medical school, pre-med, and residency.
