Richard’s Answer

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.

Taylor’s Answer

I don't really think its what you know, more about what you are passionate about. It also depends on what kind of doctor. Are you specialized in a certain area? Or are you just a general/family doctor?


In terms of courses you will take, the bread and butter course every doctor needs to know in and out is biology. Outside of your foundational courses like organic chemistry, genetics, etc., I think the best way to know what you like is shadowing other doctors to see what their day is like.


I hope that helps!
