MedLaunch - College of Medicine and Life Sciences

A resource for medical students by medical students.

Welcome to UTCOM MedLaunch! It is our hope that the information here can help you launch a successful medical school career to carry you to residency and beyond. The information presented is a collection of thoughts, ideas and advice for how to succeed at UTCOM from fellow students and graduates of the College of Medicine. We openly welcome feedback, advice, and ideas for additional information to share or questions you’d like answered. MedLaunch is an ongoing effort that will evolve over time with your help. Thank you!
