I hesitate to say that I’ve completed my first day of medical school because I’m only in orientation right now…but it is done.
In truth, I was most surprised by how big the class was. I knew going in that our class was going to be 175, but seeing everybody in one place made me realize how many people that actually is. The only other thing of note was a great speech from one of the deans about how medicine is fundamentally based on the public’s trust in doctors and the health care systems as a whole. I hope to post about this notion in more detail soon.
