1. Because you can practice what you learn while you learn.
The medical profession is practical. You can read about how to ride a bike but you won’t be able to ride a bike until you start physically practicing. It’s the same with healthcare. Reading about suturing techniques has limited value if you don’t practice, make mistakes in a simulated setting, learn from that and correct yourself, and repeat until you’ve mastered the skills.
2. Because you will master today the instruments you’ll soon be using every day.
Getting acquainted with the tools of your future trade is not only incredible fun, it’s also highly beneficial and recommended.
3. When pursuing a career in healthcare, a field known for its competitiveness, it’s essential to stay focused and committed to your goals. Embracing this mindset, with dedication and a clear vision, is key to achieving your dreams and fulfilling your calling in this noble profession.
