The My Med Future app contains a number of useful tools, resources, and information for students who hope to become healthcare professionals, their parents, academic advisors, and college and university faculty members.
The "Explore" section of the app provides a general overview of several health professions, including average salaries, educational requirements, and more. This is a great place to start for those who are newly beginning to consider a career in the health professions.
The "Track" and "Research" sections are designed for users currently pursuing a pre-health path at a college, university, or part of a formal post-bacc program, but all users are encouraged to explore these areas.
"Track" provides users with tools to help keep track of their prerequisite course requirements, grade point averages, and entrance exam scores. This information is incredibly useful as students work toward meeting requirements and self-assess their competitiveness for professional school.
The "Research" section helps to streamline the process of researching programs, including prerequisite and extra-curricular requirements, at institutions across the United States. Users search by profession, select a region of the country, then a state, then they are provided with the institutions in each state that have these programs. Each program links to the area of the institution's website that contains admissions information. Additionally, a link at the top of each state's view titled, "View Program Quick Stats!", provides information about the institution's location, size of each class, and more. Lastly, a "Take Notes" button has been added to each state view allowing users to take notes on information they find while researching programs.
The "Resources" section contains incredibly useful tools, such as a competitiveness questionnaire and place to document various experiences, as well easy access to additional resources, such as information on entrance exams (MCAT, DAT, etc.), extracurricular experiences, admissions interviews, composing a personal statement, and much more!
Initially, the app will focus on 7 popular healthcare professions: allopathic and osteopathic medicine (M.D./D.O.), dentistry, optometry, physician assistant, physical therapy, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine, with the possibility of additional professions being added at a later date.
Finally, the My Med Future app is intended to supplement, not replace, the valuable advice and insights users might receive when working in-person with pre-health advisors, general advisors, and professional mentors. Users are strongly encouraged to seek out these individuals, if available at their institutions, to help them further understand and determine how to best utilize information they access through the app.
With the new version, we've made changes to our web views, added new medical, PT, and PA programs, and updated URLs to program websites. We've also made some minor changes to some of the fonts and colors used to make text easier to read on the screen. Lastly, we've updated information and suggestions in Resources, to include the addition of information and resources to help users better understand the pandemic's impact on gaining extracurricular experiences, professional school prerequisite courses, and admissions processes.
