Episode 75: Travis - third year med student here at #UUSOM

Dec 14, 2016

“I knew that third year was going to be demanding and I have a personal life outside of medical school which is also demanding.  I decided that I didn’t want to be miserable for an entire year, so I was just going to pick a few things on every rotation that I enjoyed about it and be hyper focused on those things so that I could be happy and try to convince myself that I loved what I was doing, and it’s worked so far.”While it is healthy to have a goal or focus about what you may want to do, third year rotations present opportunities to learn things you may have never considered.  Travis and I discuss what the students see as the most difficult rotation, and some tips on how to make it through long hospital days.  We talk about how third year experiences may impact decisions, and finally, what is “psy-cation”?
