Three years ago, the AMSA chapter at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, led by medical students Stephanie Oh (an MD/PhD student currently in her PhD years) and Andrew Orr (currently a PGY-1 in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania), initiated an event called MDTalks. Featuring engaging TED-style talks by medical students and physicians, the goal of MDTalks is to provide a forum for reflection about meaningful experiences in clinical medicine.
In this talk, medical student Saurabh Sinha, inspired by his own clerkship experiences, shares his thoughts about what we can do in the present moment.
“Do I have to wait until I become a doctor to help people? What can I do right now? I don’t think we ask ourselves that question enough. What can you do right now?”
Look for more MDTalks soon on Doctors Who Create, and reach out to RWJMS AMSA at firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can bring MDTalks to your medical school.
