Do You Love Medicine?

To all pre-med “Josh” Hoyas, I write this as I sit in the depths of another university’s library, preparing myself for yet another physiology test in less than 36 hours. I was privileged, unlike many Hoyas, to be able to make it through the rigorous curriculum and approval process from[Read More…]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Rethinking the Dangers of Plagiarism
