In this video: “Reflections on my Third Year of Medical School” I reflect on my experiences as a Canadian Medical Student going through the integrated community clerkship program during my third year of medical school at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Medical School. It was such a pleasure and adventure to take part in the integrated community clerkship as I had to relocate from Vancouver to Chilliwack. The third year of medical school as a Canadian medical school is the most challenging, but also the most growth and jam packed with learning especially during the integrated community clerkship program. The reason there is such a metamorphosis during the third year of medical school is because of the transition from medicine being theoretical and occurring to textbooks to directly experiencing and taking part in the real world of clinical medicine. You work extremely hard during your third year of medical school but it is also the most enjoyable year so far, as you experience first hand the transition from a Canadian Medical student into a budding baby physician.
If you can’t sustain it, it’s not worth it.
I am a medical student who is obsessed with the Be Activated Muscle Activation Technique, mastering movement and understanding what makes humans thrive.
