"Though admittedly naïve in the world of medicine, I advise students interested in medical school to shadow as many different kinds of physicians and healthcare employees as possible to ensure that becoming a medical doctor is the profession he/she truly desires.Once that decision has been made, I encourage future students to excel and be a leader in the activities/studies they are passioniate about."
