It is no secret that I have always wanted to become a doctor. Growing up, there were the old photos-on-the-fridge renditions of halloween parties in which I, a naive and toothy first grader, was dressed in oversized scrubs and a bellowing lab coat. I  was eagerly brandishing my plastic stethoscope. Even as...
