Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes. Also, I am an anonymous internet person. Why should you trust an anonymous internet person to give you medical advice? Don't ask me, ask your doctor!

(1/2) I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing this blog (: I am in high school right now, about to go into senior year. I am excited, except for one thing: I have no idea what I want to do. I know where I want to go to college, but major and career wise, I have no idea. I used to want to be a lawyer, but hearing some not-so-great things about being a lawyer scared me away. When I was little I always wanted to be a lawyer, and I used to want to be a nurse.

(2/2) My interest in medicine has been restored lately, and I have been doing research on medical school and being a doctor. Trust me, reading about medical school (the good AND the bad) gets me way more excited than reading about being a lawyer or being in business like I’ve also considered. Blogs like yours have been a great tool in my research, and your funny posts remind me not to take things TOO seriously (; So thank you so much for what you do! (:

Wow, thank you! Glad I could be an encouragement.

And don’t stress out too much about not knowing what you want to major in. You still have a while before you have to decide. My suggestion, which I’ve said before I’m sure, is to look at your school’s course catalog, circle all the classes you’re interested in taking, and then the major that has the most classes circled is probably the one you should pick. You’d be surprised what comes up. I almost switched my major to English ;).
