What gets you up in the morning? ☕️

For me, it’s that every day I get to pursue my many passions.

Yes medical school is tough, but I really do enjoy learning the material, and I can’t think of a more interesting topic than learning how the body works!

I’ve also been having so much building the All Things Healthcare brand and partner company ATH Med Prep. So thank you to everyone who has been on this journey with me 😀

The one piece of advice I could give you is make sure you are doing something in your life you truly enjoy. And If it turns out that is not a career in medicine that’s ok too! Life is too short to not have a reason to wake up in the morning ☀️

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t take well to criticism about my writing. But since the stakes are so high during the admissions process, I’ve forced myself suck it up and share my personal statement and secondaries with people who I trust and who know me well. Yesterday, someone in my lab offered to review an autobiography that I’ve been having particular trouble with. I felt pretty okay about my draft initially, but after hearing their feedback, I realized that there was significant room for improvement in terms of clarity and showcasing my personality.
This same principle applies to any important writing you do throughout your career as a premedical student: initial emails to PIs, summer program applications, and final essays. If you don’t know who to ask for an extra set of eyes, feel free to message me. I’m no English major, but I’ve been told by English profs that they were surprised to learn I was an engineering student, and that says something. ;D

This is a picture from the top floor of the Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital! Aside from providing the variety of services and care you'd typically expect from a major hospital. This institution had a large focus on geriatrics!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I appreciated the many details that made the Veteran's hospital more inviting for seniors. Many of the wards were decorated with traditional Chinese decor which was meant to give a more "home-like" feel for patients. Railings and large text on signs were abundant throughout the hospital to make the environment more accessible for seniors
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One challenge facing the Taiwan healthcare system is the aging population. Taiwan is estimated to have 3.26 million people aged 65 and over, representing 13.86 percent of Taiwan's total population, compared to 3.09 million people under the age of 15, or 13.12 percent of the total. This is expected to increase in coming years so it encouraging to see institutions in place that are catered to older patients.

I’m almost at the end of my third week exchange observational clerkship in Chile🌟 .

It’s crazy how much I’ve learned and how much more information I retain from real cases compared to books🖇this has been my first full medical experience and all I can say is that I’m really excited to start my rotations in August 👩🏻‍⚕️

Thursday means we're almost there. Try today's MCAT Question of the Day. Answer below: .

With an outstanding team of student doctor representatives and APMA Legislative Director Ben Wallner, the VA Provider Equity Act was signed into law. It not only helps address veterans' access to foot and ankle care by podiatric physicians and surgeons but also eradicates the disparity among physician providers within the VA system.
▫️
The new law places podiatric physicians and surgeons in the same authority, pay band, and leadership promotions as their allopathic and osteopathic colleagues at the Veterans' Health Administration.
▫️
Let's continue to make health care great again and take care of our veterans and patients!

Spent the morning with a friend and colleague assisting each other in surgery. We are 2 female South Asian Board Certified Orthopaedic surgeons that happen to practice in the same town. What are the odds of that? Pretty low considering only 5 percent of practicing Orthopaedic Surgeons in the USA are female!*

You have the choice to support and collaborate with your colleagues or oppose and compete with them. The greatest surgeons are those that are not just technically exceptional, but those that continue to learn new techniques, craft their skill, embrace situations that push them out of their comfort zone and seek help when necessary.*

Surround yourself with those that inspire and are willing to collaborate not only in your career but in life. In creating these relationships your ideas and growth will only flourish.*

🔹It’s back to work for this nontraditonal premed. I have decided that I need to really focus on the weak areas of my old application, no matter what it takes. I began my undergraduate career with a 4.0 and a 3.7 science gpa, but then life happened along the way. Now as I embark on my journey to medicine I find it increasingly difficult to get into the programs that I want because of my below average overall gpa despite having 5 years experience in healthcare, research, teaching experience, and stellar recommendations. I was frustrated with the application process, I started to doubt whether I was even smart enough to become a physician. 🔹My goal is to become a strong applicant, and for me that means obtaining a second degree and a new gpa. That also means retaking the MCAT in 2019! I was hesitant to take this route because it meant more time and money. But I’m willing to make the investment in myself to achieve my dream! •I want to share my journey with other premeds to let them know that the path to medicine isn’t easy, and your path will not always look like others, but do not give up! 📸: @damnginaa

Current study setup! Planning on watching more orgo chem videos on Khan Academy for review before reviewing the CARS test I did this morning! 📚
.
Feeling a little stressed (especially for CARS), but hopefully 2 months is enough time to improve my score for Canadian med schools! 🙏🏼

ETS - Características de úlceras 🍆 🍩 😱 😱 😱

CARS: What’s unique about this section? Everything you need to answer the question is right in front of you! Easier said than done, right?

CARS is...unpredictable! One day you do great and the next it feels like you’re back at square one. It’s so passage-dependent!

My advice: do it EVERYDAY. Consistency is key. I started my mornings off with 4 CARS passages, timed. Review your answers but don’t invest too much time into it, you’re not learning content!

You know when you read a passage, get to the end, and realize you have no idea what you just read? Zombie reading is the worst and can really set you back on time.

I recommend summarizing each paragraph before moving on to the next one. You don’t have to write it down. Just think about it. This makes reading ACTIVE instead of passive. Spend the extra few seconds synthesizing the information - it will help you in the long run! If there are key words in the paragraph, highlight them or jot them down.

Once you finish the entire passage, think about the goal...why did the author write this? Informational, motivational, persuasion? Jot down those ideas.

Tackle the “easy” questions first. Then target the more difficult ones. Answer all questions before moving on! You don’t want to “save it for later” because that means you’ll have to spend TIME reviewing the passage again! Take an educated guess while it is still fresh in your mind.

Don’t practice CARS just with topics you like. Read the ones that are boring and just plain dull! It’s a great way to implement active reading!
