Medical Mystery Diagnosis....

Yesterday afternoon I was watching Medical Mystery Diagnosis and recognized a familiar face from the Ross University Medical School website.  It was Dr. Rezak, a fellow Ross graduate.  She and her twin sister graduated from Ross in 2001....WOW, that was so cool and refreshing...Look out Dr. Oz, here I come.....

I would love to be apart of the tv show, "The Doctors"...I used to watch them faithfully at home...switching back and forth between them and Dr. Oz....

Well, the sky is the limit to where I can go and where I am going...Im so excited...trying to get a handle on exactly where I would like to practice will come in time.  I have some ideas in mind...but, Im told you really will not know until you start your clinical rotations to see where you find the right fit. 

There are numerous opportunities for OB/GYN, Family Practice and Internal medicine. The US government have programs where if you practice in an area that there is a shortage of doctors, they will pay you up to $170K for five years to help with repaying your student loans..What a great opportunity, if you want to practice in these specialties.  Initially, I did not, but what a powerful incentative...With about $280K in students loans on the books after med school...cutting them down swiftly looks promising.....

In one of my favorite movies, "Good Will Hunting", the lady interest of Matt Damion said her brain is going to be worth over a quarter of a million dollars by the time she finished med school..I thought to myself wow....and now that is my reality...FUNNY.....

As I was told early on in this quest, dont worry about the investment required.  Look at the return on the investment.  The opportunity is limitedless and plentious.....Anything worth having requires an investment...of time, resources, dedication, etc....That's just the way it is...Enjoy it...look forward to reaping the benefits...

Coming soon...the Dr. Joyce Busch Show....LOL....
All things are possible to them that believe...

  1. Hi!

    I recently just found your blog and I swear I spent like two hours on reading it. I really admired you for chasing your dream and not letting anything stands in the way. Anyhow I'm also coming to Ross this January and I would appreciate if you can give me some clue as where to live thats around school. I can't access the housing listing yet until Thursday and I'm worry all the apartments near school are already taken. Any advice you have would be sincerely appreciated and see you on the island!

    You didn't leave any contact information...

    But, there are tons of apartments for singles/couples with no children...there is so much construction going on..you will not have problem finding an apartment..the issue is if you have children..the supply is very limited...
