Attending medical school (and other health professional programs) is an EXPENSIVE investment! So today, I’m sharing some info regarding the #NationalHealthServiceCorps Scholarship Program & answering questions about the application process.
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP:
The National Health Service Corps is a competitive federal program that awards scholarships to students who are dedicated to pursuing a primary care speciality & serving the underserved. Students are given a scholarship throughout their medical education (not to exceed four years). The scholarship covers students’ reasonable educational expenses (tuition, books, computer, health insurance, etc) and a monthly stipend for living expenses. In return, scholars commit to providing primary care health services in underserved communities (minimum of 2 years service).
WHO CAN APPLY:
Students pursing a #MD , #DO , #NP , #PA , #Dentistry , or #NurseMidwifery degree & entering one of the following eligible primary care specialities: #InternalMedicine , #FamilyMedicine , #Geriatrics , #Pediatrics , #Psychiatry , #MentalHealth , #WomensHealth , #OBGYN or a combination of these specialties.
You must pursue a primary care residency/speciality (listed above). If you choose a specialty other than primary care (or do not fulfill the service requirement for some other reason), then you will have to pay the government 3x the investment with interest!
I started preparing my application the January before starting medical school (7 months out). I applied for a 4-year scholarship. The application was due around March/April, and I received my acceptance letter around July + started medical school a month later!
Thanks for reading! Leave any questions in the comments section. Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing some tips for being a competitive applicant.
🔵Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the brain.This typically causes increased pressure inside the skull.Older people may have headaches, double vision, poor balance, urinary incontinence, personality changes, or mental impairment.In babies there may be a rapid increase in head size.
🔵Hydrocephalus can occur due to birth defects (congenital) or be (acquired )later in life.Associated birth defects include neural tube defects and those that result in aqueductal stenosis.Acquired causes include meningitis, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, intraventricular hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage.
🔵Hydrocephalus is typically treated by the surgical placement of a shunt system

Things I learned on inpatient neurology: -I love neurology -Seizure care can be challenging but time is brain -the most wonderful thing in the world is watching someone communicate after not having the ability. -physical exam skills are IMPORTANT -my medical degree does not equal google. -medical records are sometimes more helpful than well-intentioned families
-there’s always a nicer way to say something - @pikolinos_shoes Are da bomb
-there are tricks to elicit reflexes. Don’t just wack away. -build you differential before your exam, even if it takes you 2 extra minutes. Let it guide you!
-I love neurology.
Repost from the amazing @deathunderglass
Full body MRI, from The Visible Human Project. Strangely, sinuously beautiful; my favorite part is the brief cameo appearance of the hands and fingers - blink and you'll miss them.
More information from Neatorama, which I can neither confirm nor deny: “According to several commenters, the images used in this animation are from The Visible Human Project and were taken from a deceased body, using MRI and CT scans and cryogenic cross sections. That body belonged to 39-year-old Joseph Paul Jernigan, who was executed for murder and had donated his body to science.” #forensic#pathology#deathunderglass#autopsy
Hi everyone! I was MIA for a few months and have just recently started posting on stories again. I figured I’d share a little life update because I get a lot of questions about what I’m up to and it is also fun for me to look back on later.
1. In October I received my first medical school acceptance! 🎉👩🏼⚕️ It was such a relief to get that first acceptance because it meant no matter what else happened the rest of the cycle, I wouldn’t have to reapply and most importantly, wouldn’t have to retake the MCAT haha
2. I kept it pretty quiet on here because I know the application cycle can be a sensitive time for everyone - it’s hard not to compare your journey to someone else’s!
3. Still not sure which medical school I’ll be going to as I’m still waiting to hear from schools post-interview.
4. During my “gap year” (I’m a non-trad applicant so I’m just referring to my application year) I’ve been working towards a Master of Arts in Bioethics. I’ll share more on that later!
5. Pretty sure that some of my friends, family, and acquaintances think I’m just a perpetual student...which they are not wrong about haha. But it can be hard to explain this process to those not in the medical field, especially since I finished undergrad and my first masters years ago and am now back in school again. 🤷🏼♀️ Also, when people ask what I’m working towards, l’ll say “I’m starting medical school this year.” 9 times out of 10, they’ll say “Oh, so you want to be a nurse?” 🤦🏼♀️ Nursing is a fantastic career but nope, I will be a physician! Do any other girls get that response, too?!
Anywho- thanks for reading this! Can you share one thing you’re excited about or what’s new with you?? #medicalschool#medstudent#premed#mcat#premedlife#physician#medschool#nursing#foreverstudent#studyinspo#scrublife#studentdoctor#nontrad#nontradpremed#postbacc#ohiostate
If you’re reading this, don’t judge my cuticles 🙈 This account is all about my food, anyways. So let’s talk about this smoothie AKA my ode to @traderjoes. It’s full of my same old tricks (berries, 🍌, PB, maca, etc.) but topped with Trader Joe’s peanut butter protein granola, which, yes, is as awesome at it sounds. Next time you’re loading up on cookie butter & everything bagel seasoning, so yourself the favor and try this out #plantbased#intuitiveeating
Got me a BOBA for studying! 😋I treat MYSELF! 🤣
On my free time I be either expanding my knowledge, playing games and etc. .
I brought this old physiology book. I want to start reading it because I will take this next year 😳 I’m not worry about the anatomy part, I’m more worried about the physiology part but the sooner you start and the more prepared you are, the better lol. According to many rumors physiology can be harder to learn than anatomy. After I’m done with that, I will apply to RN, BSN program ( That sounds exciting 🙄🤣 ) then after the BSN program I prepare for the MCAT calmly because I’m in no rush ☺️. The goal is to score a high score so I can have a competitive score. Then after that I will apply to med school ( That sounds exciting 🙄😂 ) My resume is already extremely competitive. Even my doctor that went UC Berkeley and my two other doctors that went to Harvard are impressed with my resume. HOWEVER, I just need to finish up my education to make all my hard work really count. It just takes time ☺️
By the way, At Asian shop, there was this cute Asian girl but she speak barely any English. All she say, “Sorry I don’t speak English” I’m like damn ;-; why every Asian girl I like don’t speak English 😂. I remember dating this one Japanese girl, she was a international student and I forgot what was her major but she wanted to do leadership and do management in the hospital. I’m like OH! 🤔So you gonna boss me around 😉😍🤣. But honestly she was the real deal! 😳 I really liked her a lot, she was really beautiful, family oriented, knew how to cook 😫❤️😍 dress very classy and adorable personality. I was like HOLY COW 🐮 she’s the real deal ! 😳 ... BUT we didn’t click ;-; oh well fuck it lol
Me trying to flirt in Chinese, I was like “Ni hao? Ni hao ma ;-;? ( Which is Hi! How are you in Chinese ) Can I get a strawberry boba🍓 *Talks to me chiense* I’m like yeah 🤔 yeah 🤣 ( In reality I didn’t understand what she was saying 😂 ) then after I leave I say Chen Chen. ( Which is thank you in Chinese )
Today this group of medical students at UAMS spent part of their Saturday participating in SNMA’s annual HPREP event! We taught physical exam skills to high school students from across Arkansas. I personally focused on pneumonia findings post influenza, otitis media and externa, and the splitting of the second heart sound during inspiration! 💊💉🌡🏩🚑
Wait so what is HREP?! HREP is an outreach program that provides Arkansas high school students with the opportunity to prepare for college, gain exposure to various career paths in healthcare, and interact with students, faculty and staff of this academic health center. HPREP accomplishes SNMA’s mission of supporting current and future health professionals from underrepresented backgrounds.
🌟 Other factors I considered when choosing PA programs! These weren’t quite as important to me as the first five I shared:
I know, I know! Shouldn’t this be a top priority?! Well, yes and no. My number one priority was to get accepted to a program - period. If that program ended up being 💸, I would deal with that. I applied to a wide variety of programs I felt were a good fit — with varying costs, but no matter how the cookie crumbles, PA school is esssspensive. 💰 When I was interviewing and later choosing which program to attend, this was something I considered more seriously.
2️⃣ Elective rotations:
Having the opportunity to do elective rotations was important to me, but not a deal-breaker.
3️⃣ Cadaver lab:
I interviewed at programs where students dissected and programs where the cadavers were prosected. While having the opportunity to dissect really interests me, I was surprised to hear this from nearly every student I spoke to who didn’t dissect: they didn’t miss it one bit and were glad to be able to spend their time more efficiently. Meanwhile, students who did dissect usually loved it. 🤷🏻♀️
4️⃣ Online components:
I am a very hands-on learner. I do much better when I’m interacting with people up-close and in a group setting. For that reason, I chose not to apply to programs heavy in distance learning and online components. Find what works for you! 🧜🏽♀️🧚🏾♀️🧝🏼♀️
✨ Thanks for following along in this choosing schools series! I hope it was helpful — please don’t hesitate to reach out if you ever have any questions! 💛

One of most valuable resources in medicine, and in higher education in general, is mentorship. I’m glad to not only have great mentors, but to also be a mentor to future health professionals. Had to stop and take a picture with my mentee on our last day together at our medical school’s pre-health program for high school students - she’s going to do great things! #mentor#mentorship
