I have been lurking around here for a while so I decided to writ a post…

I am 26 yrs old and have a bachelors degree in a social science.

I work in the administrative side of medicine in a good hospital in my city. I started this job thinking I finally found my calling. I thought Id get my masters in health care management and I will finally get over that nagging feeling that I have been ignoring to become a physician. The thoughts of “I cant do it” slowly changed to “why couldn’t I do it?”

This job has just made my aspirations to become an MD hard to ignore. I stay up all night. I research all day. I drool and stare at the residents and physicians during lunch when they have their white coats on and they discuss a patients case.

I am going through a divorce from an MD (he has nothing to do with this dream I have had since before I started university) at the same hospital so I know how hard it is to be a resident. But I put my dreams on hold so I can make it easier for him to cope and now I feel is the perfect time to go after them.

I start my prereqs this summer. Wish me luck and share your story!

Go for it and keep us posted.

Wishing you all the best and yes, you CAN do it!!!
