The old saying 'Hindsight is 20/20' is something many people say is true. This question gives you an opportunity to show how you have grown and what kind of wisdom you may pass on to someone who is coming into this career after you. A word of caution: This is not the time to say 'Run for the hills!' Be positive!
"I would say, 'Be open to changes and unexpected discoveries.' I started medical school thinking I would do gynecology, but like many other things in life, that changed. I found myself in a place where I wanted to care for a broader spectrum of people, and I am so glad I made the change to family medicine."
"I would have to say, 'If you feel like you want to specialize in one area and then change your mind, go with it. We all have that special calling in our life. We just have to listen for it.'"
"I would encourage anyone who is beginning a career in the medical field to remember to care for themselves as much as they do their patients. It is very easy to get caught up in day-to-day work and forget that while we are making a living, we forget to make a life."
