$600,000 in med school debt?!

Listener Salutes McGee (not her real name) is planning on med school after her tour of duty. What hard-won skills, she wonders, will transfer to medicine? And Krystal writes in with her med school debt worries. Will she need to plan to pay off $600,000 all in? No need to fear, Krystal and Salutes, because M4s Liza Mann, Derek Bradley, Jessie White, and M2 Abby Fife are here to soothe your fears and answer your questions.

Dave quizzes his co-hosts on medicinal booze. And And Dave heard from University of Maryland medical student and Elisabeth Fassas that she'd written a book published by Simon and Schuster's Kaplan arm just before she started medical school last fall. So as a bonus, he asked her for some tips on how you can set yourself up for a successful pre-medical experience from the very beginning. Pick up her book, Making Pre-Med Count, at your favorite bookseller.

This Week in Medical News: For the first time, lab-grown heart muscle tissue has been transplanted into a human patient. And never mind coughing into your elbow or sneezing into a handkerchief; if you want to stop the spread of germs, just lower your damn voice.

We Want to Hear From You: Are you (or do you know of) a medical student anywhere who's done something cool like Elisabeth Fassas? Write to us at theshortcoats@gmail.com. Maybe we can help spread the word!
