I know I have some years before I have to actually start worrying about this, but is med school all stress or is it fun too? #medicine #doctor #medical-education #college #premed

I loved medical school- we lived in a beautiful place (Biddeford Maine) with lots of beaches, great hiking skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking trails. We had great friends with lots of active things to do. We played basketball during lunch breaks, runs along the beach and plenty of social time to decompress. We had little money of course so it was great to live in an inexpensive area. Most medical students think a lot more about the academic strength of a given school. I recommend strong consideration to the lifestyle and setting for your school years. My school (UNECOM) had very little competition among students, a fun and accessible faculty and a beautiful location. Your well-being are critical to your success- good for you to think about that already!

The first two years were mainly lecture and lab. So if you manage your time wisely there should be plenty of time for hobbies. Third year was a little different. There were a couple of months in which the rotations were so demanding, my only hobby that I truly enjoyed was sleeping!

Fourth year was much more relaxed once the interview process was over. I started playing tennis again and even had time to take piano lessons.

I went jogging almost every day. I also studied at different coffee shops around Dallas just to have a change in atmosphere.
