In my last post I notted that one thing I’ve learned is that you need to know people, have connections, to get to where you want to go. This lesson can be applied to any aspect of life but I’ve seen this especially as it relates to medicine.
I guess my biggest issue is that I don’t know how to make these connections.
I’m the first one in my family to go to medical school. therefore, we do not know anyone in the medical field, really (bedisdes my grandmother being a nurse) so there’s no one to call up that way. It’s very frustrating because I see many of my classmates have parents or family members who are physicians so they know how to get involved and who they can call and what not.
I guess my biggest question is then, how do I make those contacts?
That’s my next goal!
