Cornell University's PreMed Lecture: Phi Delta Epsilon on "Finding and Maintaining Joy and Idealism in the Journey through Medicine"
Yesterday evening, my wife Lori and I were the invited guests for Cornell University Phi Delta Episolon's PreMed Lecture, where I spoke on:
"Finding and Maintaining Joy and Idealism in the Journey through Medicine"
We had a wonderful group of students there, who all participated in the discussion, starting with my first question: "What are the top three character traits you find in a great physician?"
There was general agreement with the first 3 ones offered:
2. Resilience - don't give up
3. Innovation and Learning
We had about 15 students come up to talk to Lori and I after the talk, and share how the talk moved them to consider how they can build a foundation for compassion during their college pre-med years.
I appreciate everyone coming out for the talk
