Do you remember why you became a doctor?

This week KevinMD published an article of mine about finding your ‘why’ in medicine. Below is a small section from the article.

What was your “why?”

Why did you become a physician? Why do you continue to practice medicine? Why have you not left medicine for another career?
It is the answer to these questions that will make the difference between you going to work happy every day or spending your entire day complaining about your job. If your “why” isn’t strong enough, you will not be able to keep up the pace this very stressful profession requires.

Often we forget why we took on this formidable challenge and sometimes we need to go back an reflect on our roots. You can read the full article on KevinMD here.

I’d love for you to come back here and tell us what your ‘why’ is. Your answer may be someone else’s inspiration.
