2019. The year we have been thinking about since med school began. Class of 2019, this year we become doctors. As the new year rolls around, its time to start reflecting on 2018 and preparing for the new year. For us in the class of 2019, this is also a time to reflect on the 4 years of med school. We have learned so much. So much more than we thought was possible when we sat in our first class on the first day of medical school. It feels like that was just yesterday and also 10 years ago at the same time.
We have learned an incredible amount of medical knowledge, yes. But more importantly, we learned how to survive and adapt to get through an incredibly difficult journey. We have built endurance to push us into our first year of residency, where a different and new type of growth will take place. Let us try not to take these challenges for granted and wish that they would go away. They will shape us to be excellent doctors and people.
