For the new doctors

A new crop of medical students have radiated, shining forth from the Fine University that I attended, and tomorrow they start work as doctors. This post is just to say to them: good luck. It's going to be an incredibly intense year. You'll learn more in the next year than you have in the last four, and you'll forget almost as much. Nobody who hasn't gone through it themselves will ever really understand how it will change you. 

Work hard. 
Take a break. 
Be interested in people's stories. 
Read a good book. 
Ask questions. 

This too shall pass.
