The field of medicine is one of the most high-profile ones so that many students look to study in it but many fails to get the admission in a med school. There are many ways in which it is very much the ultimate dream for a student to become a doctor/surgeon as it considered the most noble profession. A doctor is like a messiah to a critically ill/injured person who give a new life to him in extreme cases. So this profession holds tremendous respect among the masses.
Students who want to become a doctor want to get admission in the finest institution in this regard. It’s quite natural too so that a student studying in USA looks to study in the premier universities like Princeton and Harvard and likewise students in the Caribbean region in the best caribbean medical school. But what we mean by best and what facilities that we need in this regard will now be discussed in this blog.
What are the Core Facilities offered by Top Institutes?
If you will ask an average student what he looks forward to in a med school, he will probably tell you a place where he can study for his desired degree in medicine or surgery. There are many ways in which we can make sure that we get an admission in an institute which can make us a real professional rather just a graduate who in essence knows nothing about what he has learnt. That’s where the facilities and other aspects come into force for any student.
The facilities offered by all the educational institutes like are more or less the same apart from really premium services. Facilities like gym, tennis, badminton, squash court are really not necessary for every student. For example, a sport like squash is not that common and very few even know what it is. So if a med school is offering it its students, then there is no way a student would enroll in it for just the sake of it. So med schools must know about all the aspects in this and offer a particular facility after much thought.
What’s the Real Difference and How Students Perceive this Thing as a whole?
I am certain that you are now much aware of the fact that there are many ways in which a med school must treat the students. While students are very much immature and naïve to some extent but in no way they are fools. If any educational institute think that they can lure students to their campus just by offering an Olympic size swimming pool or a golf course adjacent to the campus, then they are wrong in their approach. Let me offer you one good reason why.
A med school which offers its students a big golf course as a marketing ploy would also charge a hefty amount for this facility. We all know that Golf is not a sport that everybody can easily afford. So if that institute is offering this facility then it must be charging a lot for this. This must be the last thing on the mind of a student looking for a place in a medical school. After all, what will difference will it make if he would play Golf along with his studies or not or if he is able to swim in an Olympic size pool or a small one?
What Med Schools Should be Offering in Real to their Students?
If you think closely, there are certain aspects that are really needed for a med school. Medical labs, a well-stocked library and a full-fledged hospital where the students can get hands-on experience about what they are studying are the basic necessities for a med school. All the other things like a spacious campus and the extra facilities that I have mentioned earlier doesn’t make an institute better than others.
Although the extra facilities are often treated as merely a marketing gimmick by most students, some students do fall into the trap. But you need to keep this aspect in mind that the number of these students is very few. So a med school needs to offer students facilities through which they can become a good physician rather than anything else.
