There are a number of web site links, especially on the first site above, that should not be missed -- about medical careers, medical education, summer internships for high school students, financial aid, medical residencies, and practicing medicine. These web site links provide an astonishing array of information and opportunities for students who are contemplating medicine as a career and for medical students seeking research and other types of opportunities.
