McKinney, TX – January 18, 2012 – Most people become doctors because they want to help people. Dr. Paul Toote, an Emergency Medicine Physician and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, not only became a doctor to do just that, but he became CEO and President of National Premed Consulting to help others realize their dreams of becoming doctors too.
In 2001 as a resident doctor, he noticed the medical students he was working with were suffering through the process of applying to medical school. As a recent graduate, he knew the struggles and challenges of the application process.
He’d wanted to be a doctor nearly his entire life but towards the end of the process realized his coveted spot might be up for grabs.
“I thought I was on the brink of fulfilling my dream only to come to another point where I could have easily given up. But I persevered and made it through. That experience is what gives me the motivation for what I do today!”
Like most students, Dr. Toote believed that good grades and a high MCAT scores were all it took to get into medical school.
“With approximately 42,000 applicants last year to allopathic medical schools, yet only 19,000 seats available, it’s imperative,” he says, “to stand out among the pack.”
That’s where National Premed Consulting comes in. Led by Dr. Toote and his team, the premed consulting firm possesses first-hand knowledge and experience in the medical school application process with direct access to medical school personnel.
“We’ve determined three common mistakes premed students make when applying to medical school,” he says.
How to avoid these mistakes, along with a number of free medical school application resources, can be found on the National Premed Consulting website at www.nationalpremedconsulting.com.
They also offer a variety of services to assist the aspiring doctor whether they are high school students seeking direction or premed students who have had unsuccessful applications in the past. Whatever the need, Dr. Toote and his team can be there every step of the way.
“The benefit is when we work with you as early as possible. It’s our formula for success—the more and longer we can work with you the greater the chance you will get in,” he says.
