In this episode we are joined by Ryan Nguyen, currently a third year medical student at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. Ryan is an exceptional medical student and shares his insights on how to overcome challenges and how to stand out as a medical student and a health professional. He has been blogging about his medical school experience at www.whitecoatdo.com. We were amazed, as you will be, to learn about all the opportunities that have been created from this single writing outlet. So if you need inspiration to start something new, then this is it! Ryan makes a strong case for thinking outside the box, or at least changing the constructs of the box you are working in. Some of the topics that we dive into include health policy, med tech, and medical education.
