There are many experiences I’ve had throughout my life, and throughout my medical training, that have helped make me the doctor and person that I am today. I’ve tried to learn from the good and bad experiences, and from the smart and poor life choices I’ve made along the way. I’d like to share the single most impactful advice that I’ve ever received as a physician. It is a story that I’ve retold many times with residents that I’ve trained, and is something that profoundly changed the way I think of what it means to be a doctor.

One night…
