Medical school… sounds like a daunting task right? Not quite… My med school experience involved traveling from England to Grenada to NYC — and while the curriculum itself wasn’t easy, the memories that were made along the way made everything worthwhile. While I was busy learning about the human body in its entirety, I was also building friendships that I know will last me a life time. Together, my ‘besties’ and I pulled all-nighters studying for finals (I was usually spotted crying at some point during the night, D would always manage to watch an episode of something, M was always calm and shopping online, and V was perpetually nervous yet somehow so energetic), went dancing everywhere from Florita’s to Bananas to Bagatelle, complained about overnight calls and weekend shifts, and comforted each other when relationships that were never meant to last broke our hearts. Together, we went through it all.
After medical school comes residency — a time when “the match” inevitably places us, as new doctors, into hospitals to continue our training. And although we all ended up miles away from each other, I know our old memories will hold strong while new ones are made. To my girlies pursuing everything from Internal Medicine to Pediatrics to OBGYN – congratulations, good luck and most importantly thank you for making what initially seemed like a difficult task into the most memorable experience of my life. “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
