One day I passed a fellow student crouched down on the pavement smoking a cigarette. She looked like any other stressed out medical student before final exams. I kinda made fun of her because her hair was all crazy. The following week she committed suicide. To this day I’m still haunted by actions. What I could have or should have done. A simple, “are you ok?” Might’ve helped her situation whatever it may be. Ever since that day I’ve tried to help as much people as I could.

@t_obi23 • Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai • 1st year Medical Student

My journey to medical school was a little different than most. I was accepted into the Icahn School of Medicine through the Flexmed program as a sophomore without having to take the MCAT. With this privilege and assurance, I was able to pursue my passions in things medical related, but also other things that weren’t necessarily medically related during undergrad. And, I am truly grateful for that opportunity.
A few days ago, I finally received my white coat and it is still so surreal. I remember writing that I wanted to become a “docter” in my kindergarten notebook. I guess that I knew I wanted to help people before I could even spell. I am excited and humbled to be a part of this profession. As a future doctor, I hope to understand my patients holistically by building a reciprocal relationship of trust so that I can best advocate for them and deliver unbiased care.
Thank you to my family, friends, educators and mentors, and most importantly, God! #teamwin

@lifeandmedicyn • University of Tennessee School of Medicine Internal Medicine Resident "If temporary sacrifice is a way to eliminate permanent suffering then it is a price that I am willing to pay!" -- I believe that nothing in life worth having comes easily. Throughout the journey to medicine, there will be sacrifices you have to make to accomplish your goal. Understand those sacrifices and hardships are temporary. Look at the bigger picture, work tirelessly towards your goal every day and before you know it, you will reach your destination. Regardless of any trials or tribulations that come your way, stay true to your dreams and aspirations. Those trying times, unfavorable conditions and doubters/nonbelievers will only make you stronger and once you achieve your goals-- will make it feel even more rewarding! As a woman of color in medicine, it was very important for me to see others like myself in the medical field. There's a sense of familiarity and belonging as well as understanding. The mentors and friends I made along the way impacted my life and career in ways I never would have imagined. I recently created my blog www.lifeandmedicyn.com for the same purpose--to mentor, motivate and inspire other women pursing a career in medicine.

@Missesrashida • Howard University College of Dentistry • Oral Health Policy & Epidemiology Resident

It was until after completing undergrad that I discovered my passion for Dentistry. But when I did- I pursued it relentlessly! I found a career that allowed me to serve as a catalyst for change. I never imagined my dreams would bring me to be attending Harvard University for residency in Dental Public Health & Oral Health Policy. My passion is increasing access to oral healthcare by work with underserved communities, serving as an Advocate for healthcare policies impacting communities of color. Finding a dream is great- pursuing it is priceless!

I knew medicine was for me since the first time I witnessed death and trauma when I was 14. Visiting family in the Dominican Republic I saw a commercial truck run over numerous pedestrians and flip over a car. It was probably one of the most gruesome scenes one can ever imagine. Seemed to be out of a horror movie. The scene didn't scare me, instead, all I wanted to do was run out and help those screaming along the dirt road. It felt like an innate response I had within me to help those people. Had I not been so young I would have raced out of that car right there and then. From that moment on I chased my dream of becoming a doctor and now here I am, a first year medical student. God is good.

@boomboomko • Long School of Medicine • Medical Student
I struggled to get into medical school mainly due to MCAT scores that weren’t competitive and a GPA that couldn’t offset it. I took a year off, moved to Kansas City, Missouri and applied again. After 2 application processes and rejection letters by 30+ schools, I finally received an acceptance email from my school 30 days prior to the start of classes. I knew God had big plans for me. I quit my job, packed all my things, and uhauled it from Missouri to Texas while towing my car😩. My goal for medical school was to align myself in a position that would allow me to have the option to go to any residency program of my choosing. And now almost 4 years later and a few days away from residency applications I can say I worked hard enough through these years to make that a reality! My advice for those still on the pursuit of your future career, just remember the only ones that reach that goal are those who never gave up. Never let you past set the standard for your future.

@mimscrubs As a sneaker head and someone who wears scrubs 5 days a week I was frustrated with the lack of modernized scrubs available. So I took matters into my own hands and created Jogger Scrubs for the next generation of healthcare professionals. We hope our modern look inspires the younger generation to pursue more careers in the medical field showing them its “C😎😎L to be educated." #mimscrubs
We are the future of healthcare.
We are 〽️illennials In 〽️edicine
use “melanin doc” for 20%off on @mimscrubs I also wanted to use this platform as a medium be a role model to show our younger generation its cool to be educated and that knowledge is power especially since there’s a lack of non-sports related black role models.

Mim Scrubs is for my colleges, my peers and the next generation of healthcare professionals-Millennials In Medicine #mims
