Between today and your graduation day, you must work hard, harder than many of you believe possible to acquire all the knowledge and skills you will need to be a physician. This is where we get the coat that symbolizes the beginning of our journey as student doctors. For me, it’s like the real, we’re starting medical school now, it feels really official at this point. Now I feel like I’m able to go into clinics and be able to do and start practicing what I really want to do. The biggest reason why I want to be a physician is because I want to be able to leave an impact on this world beyond my life. The most direct way I can do that is through individuals, through people, and to be a symbol for my community.
