What do you think they need to hear?

Hello, Friend to Yourself Community!

Please let me know what you think these fine folk need to hear from us?  It is our chance to talk to college pre-med students!

English: red apple

This is the caption of our invite-letter:

Dear Dr. Quijada,

Thank you for participating in MDCN 204: Introduction to Medicine at —-University. It is my pleasure to have you join our lecture series this year. 

Students are very excited about the prospect of meeting a physician and learning more about medicine. For many of them this is a firm choice and they would like to add to their knowledge base, while others are simply exploring medicine as a possible health career. Many students in the class are freshman, but several are sophomores, and juniors; a few of them are seniors.

I am really looking forward to hearing your thoughts, questions, if you were them, and recommendations.

Thank you friends.  Keep on.

  1. A family member has just taken his boards and would tell anyone to be sure they have the dedication to enter this field. Medicine is very demanding.

  2. That fear is a major motivator in our lives and leaves a huge gaping hole inside of us that we will fill (read self medicate) with pretty much anything. So if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, its not always a duck. Dig a little deeper. What you think it may be is not necessarily so. Ask lots of questions, look people in the eye and take an extra minute.

  3. Ethics – Miami is medicare/medicaid fraud capital of nation. Kickbacks from Big Pharm to script to patients. Memorizing the patient’s name is good. One doctor called me Robert for 3 years.
