Healthcare Training Survival List

We’ve all come heard the proverbial question, “If you were trapped on a desert island and could only take [however many] things, what would they be?”

Since healthcare training is a sort of “desert island”, I found this “must-have” list for first- and second-year med students interesting. (This link is also a great introduction to, a blog I check frequently).

Going a little deeper, I would add:

1. a bible (and using it)

2. a real connection to a local church and believers on my campus

3. a relationship with someone who knows “what’s really going on” in my life

4. finding some way, however small, where I’m giving to others

What would you add to these survival lists?  Let us know in the “comments” section.
