Whether you are a student or a clinician – medicine can be overwhelming.
Updates happen on a daily basis.
Because of this, you need to be ok with one simple truth:
You will never know it all.
Why? Because medicine evolves so quickly. It takes a lifetime to master each specific, medical, niche.
Therefore, it is impossible to know it all. Yet, many feel like failures, because they feel “less than”. But, it’s important to remember, never to compare your knowledge to the knowledge of others.
Your goal is to be the best version of yourself.
But, the question is, how?
The best long term strategy is to be consistent. Learn something new every single day…
This is why we started PA Boards…
Knowing you have to stay up to date is one thing – but actually doing it is completely different.
Whether you are just starting off or have been practicing for years – we want to help you learn something new every single day.
We want you to take the guess work out of the equation, so you can focus on what is really important:
Learn medicine to better serve your patients
