Venturing into the field of medicine means the typical barrage of questions for students and doctors in training. The sheer volume of choices ahead of you can be daunting, and prior to medical school, no one really prepares you for exactly what it means to become a doctor.
So emergency physician, author and speaker, Dr. John Shufeldt, sought out to create a list of questions using 30 years of clinical and entrepreneurial health care experience that students need to be best prepared to evaluate their future career path. He chose six high achieving and award winning medical professionals of various specialties to answer these questions.
Dr. Shufeldt calls these chosen individuals: “Outliers,” defined as: “An exceptional person for whom excellence is merely a starting point toward a destination far beyond our normal definition of achievement.”
By providing the most effective questions, and a line-up of “rock star” medical professionals, Dr. Shufeldt presents potential career pathways, tips, and resources to help students decide whether a career in medicine is right for them.
In Chapter 6, “Sit down with” Dr. Angela Nuzzarello, who has been in medical education for over 20 years, serving in various roles in medical education such as: Associate Professor, Director of Education, Associate Professor and now Associate Dean. Dr. Nuzzarello is passionate about mentoring, career development and medical student wellness, emphasizing in all of her endeavors that it is important to be passionate about what you do. This passion carries into her work and has served her well, as the recipient of numerous awards including a Dean’s Award for Teaching Excellence, four awards for Outstanding Basic Science Teacher, and most recently an Exceptional Mentor award for exceeding expectations, which is a mantra Dr. Nuzzarello holds fast to. Any medical student, resident or professional can be sure their flame for excellence in achievements will be reignited by this “mentorship session” with Dr. Nuzzarello in the form of an eBook.
Do not miss out on the opportunity to get answers to the most valuable questions you could ask someone who has already achieved your dream career. Do not even begin the time intensive and costly pursuit of becoming a doctor before sitting down with various professionals from the field.
