I have to take how many boards exams?

Saturday, May 6, 2017

If there is one thing that’s guaranteed with getting into medical school, it’s that you are signing up for many years of test taking. It’s no surprise that with becoming a physician comes board-certifying exams… quite a few of them. Picture this, you just did well on the MCAT, you made it to medical school! Now you can finally start your professional career in medicine. Oh but wait, we just need you to also pass (and do well) on just a few more exams… I’m going to discuss the MD path here, since that’s what I’m most familiar with. STEP…

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I bet all of you starting fresh in college are wondering, “What should I major in”? The simple answer… whatever you want!! This is a common question I receive on social media. I was very concerned about my major, when I started college. After contemplating a major in dance, French, and psychology, I finally decided on a major in biology. I mean… can we say boring? No offense to all you biology-lovers out there! I love science, too! But if I could do things over, I would’ve chosen one of the alternatives I listed above. College is your last chance…

When I learned about this new Rejuvenation Cleanse, I was excited because it wasn’t just juice… it was soups and a small snack as well. Now that’s more like it!

Travel Must-Haves

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Let’s talk travel must-haves, Dr. Majestic style. Whether I’m traveling locally or international, I always try to stay prepared. For me, that means taking preventative measures to ensure I am healthy on my vacations, and carrying along emergency products for those “oops” moments. My favorite vacation spot includes a beach, pretty much any beach! With the beach hopefully comes sun, and with sun comes the risk for skin cancer and wrinkles/aging. Who is a fan of skin cancer or aging? That’s right… no one. I carry along a plethora of sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 35, even higher…
