Pancakes and Firehoses: How Med Students Decide Where to Focus (9/29/2022) - There’s always something more to do, but should you do it? And how much? First, we get something important out of the way: Is “Drinking from the Firehose” the best analogy for medical school’s workload, or is “The (Infinite) Stack of Pancakes” more accurate? M2s Matt and Zay, MD/PhD student Riley and M4 Nathen discuss how they decide how much to do in medical school to become the best doctor they can be.
