About Medical Schools

Many top local medical schools and medical billing schools often have affiliations with major and private colleges like Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA.

Medical school admissions have certain criteria that must be met, one being that a potential medical school student must have attended and graduated from a four year college with a high grade point average. Medical school requirements also demand that a student take an exam known as the Medical College Admission Test or MCAT, which is a standardized, examination consisting of multiple choice questions. Local medical schools require this test to determine a student's ability. Medical school admissions use the MCAT scores in their decision to admit a student. The scores are submitted to the local medical school that a student is applying to and must be current. Scoring high on MCAT allows a student to apply to the best medical schools and have the medical school admissions committee look favorably at acceptance. Top medical schools like Harvard take students who have high MCAT scores.

Medical billing schools will teach a student to deal with the accounting side of medicine and how to work in a hospital or doctor's office setting and keep all medical records and billing up to date and in order. In major cities, you can usually find many medical billing schools, both commercially available and through vocational and community colleges. The top medical billing schools are accredited and those are the schools you should seek out. If the medical billing school is not accredited, they may be no standards in place or individuals on staff to keep the curriculum up to high standards. Find a medical billing school that offers hands on training in the best medical schools and top hospitals. Internships are often offered from top medical schools and hospitals to those students who are attending an accredited medical billing school. In most cases, medical billing schools require a high school education with courses in math and accounting. It takes about one year to graduate from an accredited medical billing school.

More on Medical Schools

Medical school requirements are quite different than those of medical billing schools and include that a college student enroll in premed courses that will prepare him or her for the four years of medical school. These courses will include biology, anatomy, physiology, chemistry and other medically related subjects. Again, doing above averages in these courses will afford a student the opportunity to apply to some of the best top medical school. Medical school admissions committees will also carefully review an applicant's college transcripts to make sure he or she has fulfilled the necessary medical school requirements.

Local medical schools have a goal to teach students how the body functions, how it can fail, and how to fix it. They also involve students in research and how to care for patients.

Usually a medical school student will begin patient contact slowly, but by the fourth year should be seeing patients on a regular basis. It is during the fourth year at many top medical schools that a student will have to decide what type of physician he or she wishes to be. There are many fields including pediatrics, general medicine, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology. Some medical school students, upon graduating decide to devote their knowledge strictly to research and end up at places like the National Institute of Health.

To find the best medical schools, or the best medical billing schools, one should make a list of his or her top medical or billing school preferences and pay them a visit to see what the philosophy of the medical or billing school is, how many medical or billing students are accepted and other relevant information. It is also a good idea to see what hospitals the best medical schools and medical billing schools are affiliated with, because at some point, this is where an internship in both fields will be carried out.
