Here’s a game for you. Let’s say you have a twenty-something female massage therapist working and teaching in a medium-sized city on the east coast. Let’s say she has a BA from a small liberal arts college where she studied English and psychology and eventually wrote a novel that never saw publication. She makes enough to support herself, and maybe start putting something away for a rainy day.

What would you guess her next move might be?

If you said, give it all up to go back to school and try to become a doctor then give yourself a gold star. (If you said get married and have 2.5 kids, then this possibly isn’t the blog you were looking for.)

With that I welcome you to Cura Te Ipsum, part medical blog, part peek into the life of someone who has surrendered her foreseeable future toward a nebulous pursuit of medicine. Will I make it? Only time can tell.
