To be a medical student is not the same as being flawless. We’re not perfect human beings, because we’re humans too.
A lot of people looks at me as a genius that’s crazy smart and with a lot of knowledge about deseases and treatments, and all that stuff. The reality is very different. We choosed to go to medical school because of the skills we had in school. We were good in physics, math, chemistry and biology. And most of us loved biology and were really interested in the aspect of the human biology and body. I hated french, did not like grammar. In gymnastics I was OK and that was it. I like people, and to talking to them. I really want to help those in need of help, and that combined with the love of biology made medical school is a great choice.
When people ask me if I know what’s wrong with them, because their sick, I have to admit that I only know a lot about cells. A lot. And that’s it. I also know a little bit about the heart, but I have to cut you open to tell if there’s a problem there. So I guess they prefer I don’t.
I love life, and I choosed to become a doctor based on my skills and what I wanted to do for a living. It didn’t have anything to with the money or the power. I also have to tell people that I’m really not that smart, and everyone that has been with me on a quiz-team knows that.
There is a lot of reading in medical school, but I studied law for three years, and that was really hell, compared to medicine. And in medicin things fit together and somehow it’s logical. You can sometimes trust your intuition. Law was law with rules made by different people with no logical comparisons to help you. But i liked law as well, but too much grammar for my taste.
Become a doctor for the right reason, and being a student in medicin, law, nursing or whatever, is what you make it.
