Read article - Quotes Marek Svoboda, Geisel '23, in an article that shares tips on how international students can apply to medical school. Svoboda, an international MD-PhD student who was raised in the Czech Republic, says when he was applying to U.S. medical schools, he often called schools to check if funding and scholarships are available to international students. Svoboda also says it is important for medical school hopefuls to recognize that it is exceedingly difficult to get admitted to U.S. medical schools, even if they have strong grades and test scores. "The most important thing is to be aware (of) how hard it is, and many students won't realize that until the last minute or ever really, so be informed and then ... be realistic about this," says Svoboda.
