you learn in medical school really prepares you for the transition into the
role of a doctor. Whatever specialization you choose in medicine, you will
still need to train in, and consider, primary care specialties. While the
medical landscape keeps changing, you need to be abreast of healthcare reforms,
new discoveries, newer technologies, newer methods of diagnosis and treatment
but many things will remain the same—and it’s important to know these things
when contemplating a career in medicine.
