New girl

Hello everyone. I’m new to the site and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Christy and I am premed. It seems like quite an intimidating task to take on at the age of 36, but I have wanted to be a doctor since I was a kid. I really hope I still have a chance at realizing that goal now.

Anyway, it’s nice to know I am not the only one in my age group on this journey to become a doctor.



Welcome aboard!

There are several other mom/aspiring physicians on this site, so you’ll be in good company! They seem to do a fantastic job!

Good luck and welcome,

Welcome! I’m a mom and a premed, too!

Welcome, Christy!!! I’m a 34 year old mother and premed, and yes–people will tell you it can’t be done. But this journey is well worth the struggle! Good luck, and thanks for introducing yourself. The more support we all have around here, the better! Let us know how you are doing along the way!
