It is never too early to ask: Where do I want to be?

Whether you are starting your pre-health journey, you are in the thick of applications, or you have already been accepted into your dream health program. It is never too early to think about where you hope to practice one day.

Thinking through this question may provide insight into which schools you hope to apply to based on research and training, or maybe it will give you an advantage in the application process or interview process depending on the mission of the school or program in which you are applying.

Similar may be said about other health focused doctoral programs or even work in academia. Utilize your passions to fuel your search and back them up with data.
