Take advantage of the college environment

Dr. Lise Alschuler speaks about the luxury of being in a learning environment with very little distraction. Once you graduate, that will change: take advantage now to be the best doctor you can be.

The Interview

Your most important job is to learn. It’s such a luxury to be in an environment where your main and in some cases your only responsibility is to just learn to be good doctors. I think to fully partake of that experience is really important because the more you learn about health and disease, the more confident you’ll be when you graduate, and the better you’ll be as a doctor. Frankly, that’s the requisite. That’s the platform that you have to have built really well. In the course of that learning, it’s also important to just keep check of your passion for what you’re learning, and if you start to get burned out and disappointed that’s a good sort of flag for you to recoup and determine what your reason for being in school is and to reemerge that passion. You learn best when you’re most passionate about what you’re learning.
