Do you remember your first day of medical school?
Most of us entered with wide, sparkling eyes and were filled with a passion to become the world’s best doctor.
Perhaps you were bursting with energy from the thought of being able to save lives, or feeling like you were going to be in a real-life episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

The sparkle in your eye dulled and you weary with what was originally your dream career.
You realise that you are burnt out and disillusioned with a career in medicine.
Talking to patients becomes a chore, patients just become numbers—medicine becomes too much.
How do we keep our sanity in such a demanding, fast-paced career such as medicine?
