Like Jordan, I also met my now wife during those years at school. And like Jordan, I ended up with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt because of school.

There are a lot of reasons why people choose to start down the path towards medical school and a degree in medicine. However, some are better reasons than others. In this post, I reflect back to my own journey and what I know now as a surgeon who’s been through the training process. Given my attending experience over the last 7 years, I’ve now experienced both large and small hospital based medicine and also private practice. I’ve been employed and am now a locum tenens.
