Gap Year Program for Medical School Applicants

Empirical Planners welcomes applications from college seniors or graduates in the process of applying to medical school. The program is a paid internship. The work is fully remote. The interns will gain experience in a multitude of clinical medical areas, health policy, the interface between the legal and medical systems, data analysis, and research. The spirit of this program is to provide a meaningful experience with excellent support from leaders in academic medicine.

We are currently hiring aspiring physicians who have graduated from college and intend to apply to medical school in the 2025-2026 cycle (to begin medical school in Fall 2026) or later.

Job Description:

Innovative medical-legal consulting company seeks pre-med students graduating college in May of 2024 and taking two full gap years (i.e., applying to medical school for a 2026 or 2027 start). Position will begin immediately. Candidates with excellent computer, writing, and research skills. Candidates who have practiced as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) or medical office scribes are preferred. This is a unique opportunity to learn about and participate in medical writing, forensic medicine, research, and educational program development. The candidate will work primarily from home with no geographical restrictions. This position will include reviewing records, writing timelines, developing costing models in Excel, developing educational programs, interacting with staff, answering phones, data entry, and assisting management with related tasks. This is not a patient care practice; it is a consulting company focused on life care plans and vocational evaluations (assessment of damages/injuries after catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, birth injuries, work-related accidents, etc.). The candidate must be proficient in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, have a basic understanding of health care principles, be a quick thinker, and able to take feedback well and function independently with excellent problem-solving skills.  The program is in its sixth year, with prior students now currently enrolled in several of the nation’s top medical schools. Employees receive hands-on teaching and medical school application coaching from a seasoned medical school professor.  

To apply – Please send a PDF version of your resume, a transcript, and cover letter explaining why you are interested in the position  and your intended fall for medical school matriculation (i.e., Fall 2026, Fall 2027) to:
