Obviously, this is a question for many students, including those who are
a) planning to attend medical school
b) soon to begin medical school
c) just started medical school
An article found on Medscape does a great job of answering this questions by explaining how it’s not only possible, but important to maintain a balanced educational/social lifestyle.
My favorite quote is from the post is “…you can only care for others if you are taking care of yourself.” Every medical student should remember this!
