Hey everyone! I'm in my 5th and final year at Carleton studying HBSc. Neuroscience and Mental Health. I'll be graduating this year with a 3.2-3.3 gpa. I was looking into doing a second undergrad degree that will last 2 years. I've applied to UTSC health policy but I'm also looking for some other programs that will last the 2 years and would be a bit easier to get a good gpa in, please let me know of any suggestions. Thanks in advance!!
I'm looking to apply to Med school for fall 2021 entry - I've already written my MCAT and feel I've got a decent shot at it. I've always wanted to be a doctor as I've loved the high-pressure first aid situations that I've experienced as a Lifeguard and I enjoy scientific problem solving as well as helping people the best I can. I really want to have one on one personal interactions with the public in my job. The only thing is that over the past few years, I've become extremely interested in health policy. I've started to really think deeply about the way the healthcare system works and all the ethical problem solving that goes into systemic policy changes. When I tell friends and family I'm interested in policy, they tell me I should think about law school and doing a specialization in health law. Even though health law sounds interesting, I just don't think I'll be able to get the clinical experience I crave to have in a job. While I still want to be a doctor, I'm hoping to leave the door open for policy work. Does anyone know if there are jobs for doctors in health policy and/or what credentials you would need to work in health policy with an MD?
