What is medschool like? What is undergrad like when you are going to go to medschool after?

How are the classes taught? What is expected from me in medschool? Give me a day to day life in detail. These have all been my biggest questions for the past 2 years and I don't ever know who to ask because I have never known or had an opportunity to ask someone who was or is going to be in college for surgery. I'm 17 and im going into my senior year in 3 months, so this is all right around the corner. I am almost certain that I have clinical executive dysfunction. How on earth do I succeed with that?! I'm neurodivergent and have severe ADHD and the unknown is so terrifying when becoming a cardiovascular surgeon is my literal dream since I could read. I am not a great student at all. I was homeschooled until 9th grade, and it was a very laid back type of homeschooling so I didn't have to stick to deadlines or really have any assignments. I just really read books on topics I was interested in. I'm bad a math...like real bad, and I go to a prestigious private school. But it's small and liberal. My school doesn't teach traditional stuff. They teach the type of school work that takes hours to complete one homework assignment and it graded on arbitrary concepts. I'm really good at science but I have never gotten an A in my science class because my science teacher teaches her classes phenomenon based. It's not all memorization. It's a very understanding and lenient environment. I also have a horrible, debilitating dopamine screen addiction that I have been teying to break for 3 years now. But im still struggling. How do I do college and how do I get to where I want to be with all of my issues, and what the hell is college? Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

What are the most important traits for a successful surgeon to have?

I shadowed a surgeon about a month ago and loved my experience! I got to scrub in and see many different surgeries and I handled a removed gallbladder and thyroid. It was an exhilarating day and I have been more and more interested in surgery the more I learn about it. I have been told before that I have what it takes to be a surgeon but I want outside opinions on what it takes to be a successful surgeon. #registered-nurses #surgery #surgeon #general-surgery #cardiac-surgeon #cardiothoracic #anesthetist #scrub-nurse
