Omaima, Omaima - 01/13/2014

Medicine is obviously not about only one thing. I pesoanrlly first asked myself where i could be happy working, then i considered if there was a point to my efforts, lastly i considered what field would best financially compensate my efforts. To be fair, no doctor i work with has mentioned an inspirational story from their childhood of healing injured animals or siblings as catalyst for their interest in medicine. Interest often comes from proximal illness or financial attractiveness, not to mention a healthy dose of megalomania. In spite of the common failings of some aspiring medical students, they are still human, and almost always become more tolerable to be around after graduation;) Like the awkwardness of when you first attended public school, med-school is no different. You will learn to play the games as you go. If you ask relevant questions and have the ability to retain key points of information, coupled with personality traits which include commitment and diligence, med-school will not be daunting in the least. In fact the days i recall most fondly are ones when i was being constantly challenged, and was filled with an undercurrent of excitement about my future. Life as a doctor of any specialty can be quite alien. Often one finds oneself put on a pedestal, at times far from the familiar social setting they are reared with. Your cohort is predetermined and at times unwelcome. Such a small selection gives way to the inevitability of conflict and, for some, eventual cynicism. Much like other life pursuits, time will be the chief measure of your own satisfaction with medicine as a career. The unique posturing medicine will offer you is the ability to feel good about your impact on the world, even if your actual work is incongruent with your preference. Give yourself some breathing room, meditate, sleep in on sunday, drink a latte or whatever makes you happy, because at the end of the day no one enjoys the company of a grumpy cliche. Best wishes, and no worries. Life is short. Dr. K
