things learned in medical school

Running list:

1. Patients are people, not their diseases
2. Each patient you see sees YOU as their doctor, and them as your only patient. You need to compartmentalize so that one patient doesnt influence the care you give another patient.
3. Every patient has their own story, their own lives, and their own families
4. So what if you’ve seen 10000 cases of the same thing? The case is a first for your patient, and they probably know NOTHING
