 "...very down to earth, very logical and accurate advice. It’s a good read!”

--Dr. Ryan Gray, MD, Co-Founder of Medical School Headquarters

"Doctor-In-Training Alexa Mieses has written the most complete guide to medical college entrance I have ever seen. It is organized logically and no doubt will be extraordinarily relevant. In my experience, members of minority groups have received a paucity of guidance and her book will shortly become their ‘premed adviser’.”

--Irwin M. Dannis, MD, FACP, Retired Admissions Co-Chair and Current Admissions Committee Member, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Mentoring in Medicine, Inc.

“The Heartbeat of Success is an engaging guide that takes readers by the hand through the stages of preparing and planning for medical school.  Alexa shares candidly her well researched advice and personal experiences as well as the experiences of others in order to guide you through the often daunting experience of being a pre-medical student and applying to medical school.  Ultimately, fierce preparation plus opportunity will lead you to success.”
--Jennifer Betancourt, Associate Director, Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship, Thomas J. Watson Foundation

About Me

I am a young doctor in training, striving to make a difference in the lives of others. I aspire to be a wonderful clinician with influence beyond the confines of an examination room. As the first in my family to pursue a career in medicine, mentors were highly influential to my success thus far. I hope to serve as a role model for others working to make their dreams a reality.

I'm a native New Yorker and grew up in Queens. In 2006, I graduated from the 
Bronx High School of Science, a specialized, competitive, science high school. In 2011, I earned a B.S. in Biology from the City University of New York-City College (CUNY). During college, I was awarded the Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship, a full-time research fellowship with the National Institutes of Health and the Jonas Salk Award, CUNY's highest scientific undergraduate honor. I was also named a Great Grad from the 2011 graduating class.

I am currently pursuing an 
M.D./M.P.H. joint degree at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (formerly Mount Sinai School of Medicine). The educational marriage between medicine and public health provides me with the tools needed to enact change in the world. Since beginning medical school, I've been awarded a merit-based scholarship from Mount Sinai, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, and was awarded a research fellowship by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. I was selected to participate in the competitive, Integrated Ambulatory Care Track (InterACT) for my third year of medical school.
