The Life of a Medical Student
Starting medical school has proven to be the biggest challenge I have faced so far. After just the first few weeks, I felt not only my mind being tested, but also my will. As a class, we were informed that medical school would consume our lives, and I initially refused to believe it, but I have since understood the meaning of that and I am working day by day to maintain a proper life-work balance as I make my way onto my dream career.
Here I will document my medical school journey with a series of introspective pieces to represent my experiences in "The Life of a Medical Student."
