Here is Part 3 in our Humans of Greenville series about Anna Quantrille, M.D. Here she talks about the personal growth she experienced in medical school.
(3/5): “If you could tell ‘first day of medical school you’ one thing, what would it be?” “It’s going to be totally different than you think.” I was way more uptight in undergrad. I worked so hard to get into medical school and you have to learn how to let things go; that you can’t be in total control of your patients or the situation. You just do your best. I needed to be broken of my need for control, and medical school will break you of that. And that’s not a bad thing. I’m more relaxed, I have better boundaries, and not just with medicine; I realize that people are responsible for their own decisions.”
