Reputation and Ranking

Are educational performance measure (EPM) scores validation for all medical student needs? Should we just aim to rank in the top 10-25% of the year? Are the results of clinical and written exams predictor of your effectiveness as a future doctor?

It’s easy to get caught up in the rat race of medical school. It’s easy to be consumed by the surmounting pressure to exceed a standard.  But the question to ask yourself is: How do you want to be remembered by your patients and colleagues?

Pick 2-3 words that sum up how you would like patients and colleagues to remember you e.g. safe and caring or efficient and honest.

Good educational performance is essential to pass medical school, but a good reputation is essential for life.
