Finding balance in medical school is a challenge that many students do not prioritize. We are so caught up in making the grade and scoring high on our boards that we lose ourselves in the process. Don’t get me wrong, medical school requires a huge amount of sacrifice (and rightfully so, we will eventually be the person standing between our patients and the grave). However, I full-hardheartedly believe that to treat humans, we must maintain our humanity. I feel like I have finally found my balance between school and doing things that I love. Check out my latest post up on the Merck Manual Med Student Stories to learn how to find balance during the year and get involved while maintaining your grades.
