Systems-Based Curricula

Perhaps the most important attribute of a medical school is its curriculum.

But I’ve come to realize how important it is as I’ve gone through this first year of my program.

During the height of the “scare”, I was an emergency department volunteer at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. My duties included assisting patients to their rooms, running samples and medications around the hospital, and ensuring that patients felt as though they were being properly cared for. One evening, though, I arrived to be assigned to a different task.

Public speaking is a fear that I often hear cited along with phobias of things like spiders, snakes, or heights. I think of it as very different, though.

Somebody has decided that what you have to say is important enough that multiple people will want or need to hear it.
