She's a rising senior in high school set on medicine and I'm trying to help provide some perspective for experiences she may encounter.

    Thanks in advance!
    I'd suggest she sign up for twitter (tiktok has the same), and follow a bunch of woman physicians, and prolific interns, etc. Also see if she can shadow some folks, both in and out of clinical roles. It'll help teach how to find signal to noise, and hear a lot more real world stories than just 1 book. May alos lead to some networking, which is also a good skill.

    As one who is encouraging her to consider engineering, computer science among other options, I can assure you if she's not it's not from lack of parental effort on my part.

    Thanks, ordered a copy!

    Your daughter is more sensible.

    Mine watched Gray's anatomy for inspiration :-(

    What a c**p show but at least it taught her some medical terminology.
