I am a third year medical student who has been able to do clinical research as well as continue my extracurricular interests in music and singing. Medical school teaches someone how to be a doctor and how to be a student for life. The first two years are traditional education with lectures and demonstrations in a typical lecture hall. The second two years are what we all went to school for: seeing patients. On any given day as a third-year, I go to the hospital, round on patients in the morning, check labs and modify drug regimens to best care for the patient, and talk with patients in the afternoon. We see the operating room in the day as well as the ER at 2:00 AM, seeing what doctors see and learning how to think like one. It is an extremely rewarding experience and truly a privilege.
