“Once I started writing, I realized something: Discussing those initial challenges showed me that I had a story to tell, and I wanted to tell it. Furthermore, I started to understand how important it was for me to tell that story on my own terms. I didn’t want to be asked about those difficulties during an interview and go on the defensive. I wanted to be in control of the narrative.” – Dr. MJ
“I had no idea how I would keep all these facts in my brain, let alone keep them organized there. I remember telling my parents that I wasn’t having trouble with the concepts and didn’t need someone to explain the material. What I needed was someone to explain how to keep all these facts in my brain. Until I found STATMed Learning, no one knew how to help me in that way.” – Dr. MJ
“When my medical school had me meet with one of the top students in the class above me, she was confused about how I could not be getting excellent grades if I was putting so much time into studying. I ended up feeling even worse about my situation after talking to her for 30 minutes and then did everything I could to avoid her for the rest of the year.” – Dr.. MJ
