Thank God for I got through the first year of med school. It is not a walk in a park to complete all the units before reaching second year. I am blessed with good friends and people who inspire me to pursue my dream. Without them everything I do would be meaningless and out of place.
So hows first year? All I can say is from the first day and last day of being a first year student, every single day will always lead me to the realization that there are a lot of things that I don't know. It was always my habit to criticize other people but here in Medschool I learn to trust others because of this realization. It is a very humbling experience. For ourselves to be adequate we must first accept that we are insufficient. We can only fill a cup if it is empty than just pretending to be empty. We will learn a lot if we acknowledge and trust others capabilities rather than doubting them. It also taught me that for you to learn, you must also thrive to learn. And learning with other people is more fun than learning things by yourself.
In the end, being a good Doctor will not always be about how much you know, but how you treat and respect your patients.
