Episode 9: A Surgeon’s Courage to Try Again
Brief: You worked so hard for this moment…you got into medical school, survived medical school, and just finished applying to residency. Everything comes down to this moment and you are full of excitement, nervousness, and curiosity. Did I match?
My interview with Leah is a great example of what it means to never give up on your dream even if you do not succeed on your first attempt. Leah did not match into orthopedic surgery the first time she applied. Was she devastated? Absolutely. Did she give up? No.
In this episode, Leah shares how she coped with this devastating “failure”, how she readjusted her strategy, and the awesome advice she has for you.
