The Road from Student to Physician

            Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting with a group of second and third year students at KSUCPM. We discussed everything from difficult classes and preparing for residency, to fellowships, the places that they dreamed of living and working, and even the idea of taking the leap to open a practice of their own. For some students, these areas were only a matter of how, when and where (or in some cases, wherever the path would take them), but to others, with less room for a free spirit mentality, considering something like a post-residency fellowship, or deciding where to practice was much less “wait and see” and seemingly a lot more complicated.
