Pearls of Wisdom:

  • Focus on being a good doctor and let the titles follow our work
  • Rather than trying to think about the whole path that lies ahead, focus on the next steps. Because when we shine the torch five feet, the next five feet will be visible
  • Go and be proactive in reaching out to mentors, especially those who are not afraid to be honest with us
