Hello Future Doctor!

Welcome to The MedMentor. I created this blog for aspiring physicians wanting to know MORE! No matter where you are in your path to becoming a doctor I want to help YOU achieve your dream by providing information and knowledge! The road to becoming a doctor is not a sprint . . . It is a marathon!

Who am I and why am I doing this?

I am an orthopedic surgeon early in my practice. I am the first in my family to become a doctor so I did not have a clue what I was getting myself into. All I know is that I wanted to become a doctor when I was kid. And that may be the case for many of you. As I went through my training, I wish I had a guide or someone to walk me through the process of training to be a doctor. I knew the path but I didn’t know the details. Luckily, I was still able to do what I love and enjoy the specialty that I have chosen, but it would have been a lot easier if I had some tips and pearls that you don’t read in a book along the way.

This blog is for anyone and everyone who wants to become a doctor and who wants to know more. Whatever stage you are in whether as a middle or high school student, college student, medical student, currently in residency or fellowship, non-traditional students or even a parent of somebody who wants to become a doctor, this is the place for you. Every physician has a completely different experience and journey on their path. I can only speak about mine but the goal is to provide you with some basic information at every phase and answer any specific questions that you have. I obviously don’t know all the answers but I can find you somebody who does or re-direct you to that right place.

This is a fulfilling, rewarding, yet difficult profession in so many ways. You have the opportunity to help and affect millions of lives in a positive way. There will be many times when you feel alone and you want to quit and I am here to tell you are not alone. We have all been there.

So please enjoy and learn. Ask me what you want to know.
