Going to medical school is hard work even if the degree is well worth it in the end. Students can expect to get little sleep, study long hours and take a significant hit to their social lives just to stay afloat. Sometimes it can be nice to get some reassurance that you’re not alone, remind yourself why you got into the field in the first place, and just enjoy reading about medical topics for something other than class. These blogs offer medical students at all levels a chance to do just that, with insights and advice from others in their position, doctors and health care experts from around the world.
