A Doctor's Life in SummaryCreated by:

This Latin Quote was posted in our alma mater's (University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Medicine & Surgery) facade and medical informatics center.
Art is long,
Life is short,
Experiment is dangerous,
Judgment is difficult.
This beautiful remined encompasses everything that doctors face everyday. Another personal favorite is a sign that used to be posted in the hallway of our medical school that reads "Not all of the deserving are privileged." Whenever I passed by this sign as a medical student, I felt gracious to have all this seemingly insurmountable and unending chores because it meant I was in a position to pursue my dream. Do you have a favorite go-to-quote or reminder that helped you propel through medical school?
