Studying Medicine

To do or not to do

On our campus there is a fair amount of animosity between those who are involved in non-academic activities (such as community interaction and student government) and those who are not.

Those who are involved feel that the others miss out on personal growth and, quite frankly, are doing humanity a disservice.

“The others” feel that they are at university to study, and that that is what they will do.

If you know me, you know that I am annoyed by individuals who refuse to get involved.

But every once in a while, I imagine something horrible. What if you start enjoying your extra-curriculars more than your course? In a course such as this, where it is so extremely important that you enjoy your work, if you wish to survive the long hours and the difficult patients?

What if your hobby, instead, becomes your passion?
