I have heard that medical school is the toughest four years of a future physician. What tips can be given to someone who is aspiring to go in that field? How should time be managed which doing the internship at the hospitals and studying for your classes?
I want to become a cardiothoracic surgeon however I am unsure what path to take. Should I just simply go to college and apply for as many scholarships as possible to pay it off or should I join the Airforce or Navy? #surgeon #doctor #military #medicine
Time management is key. Between lecture, lab and studying, the first 2 years will be grueling. Make sure to leave time for yourself to exercise, eat right and even some socializing.
There will be times during 3rd and 4th year when you will be frustrated by your continued lack of skills and knowledge but just remember that there will be plenty of time to master your specialty during residency.
Time management can be tough when you are in school and interning. I recommend placing your tasks in order of importance. Once they are prioritized I would create a calendar and plan the most important things first and fill in the remainder of your schedule with small tasks and personal time. Sticking to a schedule is crucial for time management.
