I became a doctor because it gave me an opportunity to improve peoples lives through science. My generation has been blessed to be trained in an environment that boasts some of the most talented physicians & advanced medical resources ever known. It is an amazing time we live in, & I get the opportunity to expand my knowledge every day. Most importantly, I get to meet new people & serve as a leader of an outstanding medical team
Communication, communication, communication. I need to understand my patients symptoms & illness. I need to understand their treatment goals. I need to make accurate diagnoses & communicate my recommendations in a clear manner. If I can't understand & relate to my patients, I will be of no use to them.
