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 healthcare professions, including average salaries, educational requirements, and more. This is a great place to start if students are first 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 or university, 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 the screen titled, "View Program Quick Stats!", provides information about the institution's location, size of each class, and more.
The "Resources" section contains incredibly useful tools, such as a competitiveness questionnaire and place to document experiences, as well easy access to additional resources, such as information on entrance exams, extra-curricular experiences, interviewing, 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 invaluable advice and insights students receive when working in-person with pre-health advisors. Students 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.
This version of our app features the addition of links to the My Med Future website as well as other minor fixes.
