I gained my undergraduate degree in biology and Math from Saint Marys University, Halifax, NS, Canada. I also gained my Medical Degree from Medical University of Lodz. I have seen the benefit of long term, intergenerational teaching. I firmly believe that some of the truths-truths that will make a fundamental difference in the way students come to understand medicine and therefore test their knowledge-are held back at a crucial junction in their education. I have stared into the face of the standardized test, whether it be The Canadian Board Exams, The USMLE Step 1, or the LEK, I have seen their lengths and through sheer fortitude, succeeded in all thus far. I still have many other obstacles to traverse, but having gone as far as I have, I have come to the realization that the logic on which my academic prowess was weighed in the University may have been slightly skewed. That is not to say I did not receive a stellar education, indeed I would go so far as to say it was magnificent. What else can be expected, after all from one of the top European schools in the world. What I am saying is that the world is larger than just Europe, and perhaps the stellar education I had makes sense for those aspiring to remain near to the school and the system from which its style originates, but for those seeking the challenge of life elsewhere, there has to be something more. In my time as a student, there really wasn’t. I want to give the next generation another chance to find something more in the study of the art of medicine.
