Join the community! There are a ton of Pre-Med and Med Students that you can connect with online through social media, blogs, and online communities. Making friends and making connections with people who are also making their way through medical school can be a great way to learn new survival tips, get or give support, and find new study resources. I strongly recommend that you take a look through the online communities, blogs, and social media account below until you find some that you like.
I am in the list of course. I’d love to hear from you all, so don’t hesitate to send me a message on social media.
I host both a Group and a Page on Facebook. I’d love for you to join my group and follow my page. The group I created is for Pre-Med Students, but I plan to start a Med Student group in the near future. My Facebook page is more of a personal page that discusses a mix of med school, travel, and fashion. check it out below!

There are a lot of medical student subs on Reddit. It’s an excellent resource for asking and answering questions, finding new study materials, and learning about how others are coping with medical school life. Check out the following subreddits:
