Dear Incoming Podiatric Medical Student

Wed, 09/27/2017 - 10:55
Issue Number: Volume 30 - Issue 10 - October 2017Author(s): Rami Basatneh

You are embarking on a lifelong journey, cloaked in the guise of a four-year excursion in podiatry school. Everything you have heard about this adventure will not do justice to what you will soon discover on your own. This is not because your predecessors leave out important information when you ask for their guidance. To the contrary, the advice I received from upperclassmen and mentors was invaluable. Nonetheless, the medical school experience is so heuristic that sometimes the best aspect you can prepare an incoming student for is its empirical quality.
