Becoming a doctor does not happen overnight. Many medical schools require a Bachelors Degree from an accredited university, science courses, and a minimum score of a 30 on the MCAT. The average MCAT score seen among Med School entrants is 31.1. More women are choosing to become doctors with more than 8,000 dedicating their lives to it in 2011. The average practice physician is between the ages of 40 and 59. If you had an excellent experience with your doctor, be sure to let them know about it and send them a thank you note. The following samples will help to encourage the message you want to relay.
