I’m totally intrigued by your diary entries! I’m a 34 y.o. in the early stages of applying to medical school. I’m hoping to enter in Aug 2005. Like you I have training in the arts – I currently work as a professional musician but never stopped thinking about whether or not I should have gone to med school.
I hope you’ll keep your posts coming, because they are providing me with so much insight! Good for you for doing such challenging volunteer work.
I wanted to write and thank you for the light you shed on the relationship between art and medicine in your journal entry ‘Broken Sculpture.’
I also possess a degree in fine art and have found myself wondering if my skills as an artist would ever be relevent to a career change into medicine.
The entry just made so much sense to me.
