I agree with Richard! The stress can be highly motivating. Medicine is very challenging AND rewarding. I also believe that all professions have stressors if you take them seriously and want to do your best job possible. From the contractor building a house to the teacher in charge of educating children, everyone has tremendous responsibility.

Richard’s Answer

The fear of making mistakes is ever-present. It motivates us to keep up-to-date with the latest research and technology. I believe the patients know that we are trying our best to make correct decisions fro their health and appreciate our efforts

I think no it is not stressful, it matter a lot on how you are prepared to get into this job. The way you are trained it prepares you to hand the situation . The big issue as you get into medical school gets prepared to meet patients, learn as if you are going to meet the patient on the next day.

Rahul’s Answer

It is extremely stressful, but maybe it is how you handle this aspect of the job and whether you can use this sense of incoherence and instability to drive you towards your intended goal, that defines the person that you really are and you will become in the future. Maybe, stress is not always detrimental and the way you handle it, has the potential to shape you as a person.
