Anyways, I'm getting off topic. I wanted to share my response to the first comment because I think it best sums up how I feel about my school and my education as a whole. Something that I have obviously not made clear enough on this blog.
The point of an education is to learn, and I’m learning everyday not only about medicine which is important, but also about the world and about the plethora of different cultures that populate it. I’m learning how to work with others who are not the same as me, how to communicate effectively, and most importantly I’m learning about myself and my ability to overcome life’s hurdles.
