New Beginnings: Farewell from the Editor

0

By Walter Wiggins

I have had the great pleasure of serving as the Editor of FirstAidTeam.com for the past two years. In this time, I have worked with an amazing team of authors and editorial staff. I’ve seen my authors (who were already very good writers at baseline) develop into great writers. I’ve even been a first-hand beneficiary of their outstanding advice, and I’ve learned much from the experiences they’ve shared on this blog.

I like to think I’ve made a positive impact on the blog and our social media presence during my tenure. However, I’m certain that working in this capacity has had a major impact on me. In fact, one of the things that came up most often during my residency interviews this past winter was not my Step 1 score or my clinical grades or my class rank or even my doctoral work in neuroscience, but rather the faculty at some of the top academic institutions in the US were interested in my experience as the Editor of FirstAidTeam.com.

As I leave to start my internship and residency, I know this website, the blog, and our social media outlets will be in good hands. USMLERx and First Aid remain on the cutting edge of medical education and study tools. New authors and editors will come along and provide a different perspective. They’ll shape this organization with their own vision and the next wave of medical students will benefit greatly from their efforts.

If I had to leave you with just one piece of advice, it would be this:

Do what you need to do to take care of the “checklist” items in your life (Step 1, clinical rotations, landing a great residency in the specialty of your choice), but make sure that you leave time for the people and things you love and enjoy. Often you’ll find that taking care of yourself and nurturing your relationships will help you perform at a higher level and work more efficiently. But more importantly, life just isn’t any fun when you’re singularly focused on your “checklist.”

Cheers and best wishes for a satisfying career in medicine,

walter
