Chapter 1: Is Medicine Right for You?
Everyone struggles with career decisions. But you may be surprised to hear that sometimes identifying what is not right for you is easier than knowing exactly what is right for you. Some of the most compelling applicants for medical school are older professionals who realize later in life that medicine is their true calling, and some of the least appealing applicants are zealous younger students who seem blind to the possibility of doing anything else in their lives. Two considerations may help you satisfy this question for yourself—knowing exactly what medicine requires and knowing how to separate motivation from inspiration.
