What is medaholic.com?

I am Canadian trained internal medicine physician. I started medaholic when I was a medical student, writing mainly about my experience with the admissions process and medical education.

I started this blog in 2008 to document my journey through medicine. Since then it’s evolved into a resource for people interested in pre-med studies, MCAT, medical school admissions, medical school, residency and a career in medicine. Along the way, I try to write down stories and advice I have stumbled upon or have been passed to me.

Personally, I hope I reflect on these posts in the future and still find I have the same ideals and passions for medicine as when I first started.

  • You can find a list of useful articles and posts in the archives
  • My recommended list of favorite books
  • I have a section on the MCAT with some resources. Here’s a tutorial to help self study the MCAT.
  • Patient privacy is protected in all my posts. The stories are fictional and but the experiences are real
