There isn’t a specific major required when applying for medical school, just specific

classes that are needed. Some people go the pre-med route, however, I’ve decided to get my

major in Biology. The reason for this is because most of the classes required for a Biology major

coincide with the classes required for medical school. My research topic involved searching for

medical field associations and journals.

The methodology I used for my research was to search on google for medical

associations. This lead to a website listing medical associations of a wide variety. Once I found

medical associations I started looking for medical journals. I started with searching “medical

field magazines” which didn’t give me the type of information I was looking for. After I tried

being a little more specific and used the term “Surgical Journals” as that is what I am most

interested in. This got me the results I was looking for.

My results was a website with a list of Medical Associations and many Surgical Journals.

I used the list of medical associations to look for specific associations that applied to the

specialty or part of the medical field I am interested in. Searching for surgical journals resulted in

many websites that are dedicated to surgery. With these resources, I would be able to keep up on

new and important information in the medical world.

The associations on the list ranged from the American Medical Associations to Center for

Disease Control. Each of the sites I visited from this list were published as official websites by

associations themselves. The surgical journals were published by a group of medical associations

in order to keep people of their profession up-to-date on new procedures and other information in

the medical world.

For full access to the medical associations you would need to apply for a membership or

a subscription. The surgical journals do not require any sort of subscription or membership to

view. If you are wanting to keep up-to-date in the medical world I would suggest you look for

some medical journals that apply to your specific field and I’d also suggest getting a membership

for an association that best fits your field of practice.
