Giving up on med school
Ella over at Journey to an MD…and Beyond has a well-written post on when you should consider giving up the med school dream. Great advice for med school but I think it is applicable to all the stages of medical training and other aspects of our lives. It’s important to be very self-aware of our motivations for pursuing something. If you take the time to reflect on those motivations and ask yourself the hard questions, your answer will be self-evident. Ego, especially for med school types, can mask itself as passion and, unfortunately, you are the only one that can tell the difference.
