Notable quotes from Dr. Einstein’s interview:

I think that there are many more people now who take a chance, take a risk in having different backgrounds – that atypical background – before attending medical school.
While I was having that first business experience this little seed inside me was growing, and one day I had an epiphany that I did indeed want to become a doctor.
I loved learning from my patients. I loved learning from the nurses, and the rest of the staff at the hospital.
I loved taking care of my patients. It was really an honor and a privilege to do so, but I had additional interests and skills I wanted to pursue.
Even if you don’t have a former mentoring relationship, consider creating your own informal advisory council.
Be curious. You can learn so much from others and apply it to your own life. Be an active listener by asking the right questions and engaging in the conversation. It shows you care.
