Getting into medical school is all in your mind with Dr. Renée Volny Darko

On this episode of Medicine Mondays we have Dr. Renée Volny Darko, an OB/GYN and founder of Pre-med Strategies, Inc. through which she runs her app-based program, MEdEq. Dr. Renée has been a leader in the premedical world for almost two decades. Today she stops by the Lunch and Learn community to talk about her path on becoming a physician. What the mindset of a premedical student is these days, debunking pre-med myths and how to succeed despite lower GPA, MCAT scores and confidence.

MEdEq is dedicated to cultivating top-choice URM medical school applicants through pre-career development and diversity recruitment. Dr. Renée is shaking up the way diversity recruitment is done by helping to decrease the gap of knowledge and access between medical schools and pre-med students. As author of her bestselling children’s book, How Good Ol’ Dr. V Came to Be, and host of the Total Pre-med Makeover Podcast, Dr. Renée is spreading the word to all ages about how the tribulations of the pre-med journey can turn into triumph!
