"It's Not Right, But It's The Way Things Are"
Sometimes, you just need people to tell you the truth, even if the truth isn't something you might want to hear. A good mentor not only points out your strengths but also helps you correct weaknesses as well. In this mentor moment, Bushra remembers a hard, but important, piece of advice from her first year of undergraduate.
"You Need to Start Saying, 'I Can Do This'"
It's a strange dynamic when everyone around you gives you praises and compliments, but you're full of negative self-doubt. Words can have the ability to bring you down, but it can also just as easily prop you up. In this mentor moment, Leen shares one of the most important lessons she learned in med school.
"It's Your Medical Team... May We Enter?"
The subjective education taught in medical school can cause medical professionals to presume patients will inherently give their trust, thus allowing us to move freely in their space and examine them without questioning. In this mentor moment, Margaux recalls an informal, but important, lesson learned while performing patient care.
"She Didn't Look Like the Professors I Thought I Would See"
The way someone looks can impact our views of them—but it shouldn't. Someone's words and actions are the things that should matter. In this mentor moment, Harjit remembers a brief but impactful moment that helped her reflect on her own way of viewing the world.
"You Should Say it Without Casting a Shadow of Doubt"
The encouragement you receive from a young age can have the ability to propel you towards future greatness and success. In this mentor moment, Bushra reminisces on a moment from her childhood that boosted her self confidence and pride and set her on the path of becoming a doctor.

Love these ladies!!! Women are on the rise in medicine, but still are way behind men in holding positions of leadership. It's so great to hear from these strong, intelligent, up-and-coming female physicans as they talk about important issues in medicine and demonstrate their strong leadership capabilities. Not only that, but they are charming and it's a delight hearing them interact and listening to their personalities shine through.
