So tonight I heard an interesting statistic. By the time we are done with medical school, America will be short nearly 200,000 doctors. When I heard that I turned to Nate and said,
“Did he just say 200,000?”
Yes, yes he did.
Do you know what that means for us???
Free food!!! Tonight was officially our first recruiting dinner. These people start early! And after a delicious 4 course meal, a gift card to Macaroni Grill, a stress ball, and an awesome pink highlighter, I’m sold! In 8 years (when we’ve finished med school and residency) we will be returning to Utah County to help in the shortage of doctors in Happy Valley.
At least that’s the plan for now – we’ll see what happens after the NEXT recruiting dinner!
Alas, I should go back to studying for the lab final I have to take in less than 12 hours. For some reason it’s hard to be motivated (especially since I’m so full from my life-deciding dinner). I must be graduating in 3 weeks from TOMORROW.
