Insider Information on Medical School Admissions from Dr. Steven Hausrath


Dr. Hausrath is a local physician associated with CVPH. He was on the admissions committee at Galveston State Medical School (part of the University of Texas) for 10 years. He came to SUNY Plattsburgh on March 27th of 2002 and gave an informal lecture to the students on gaining admission to medical school.

I have copies of a video tape of this lecture in my office, which you are welcome to borrow. I made and edited a transcript of the lecture and Dr. Hausrath graciously allowed me to post it here. If you truly want to be a doctor, this is required reading.
