编者按:今年的美国泌尿协会年会(American Urological Association Annual Meeting ; 简称 AUA)即将在5月6日-10日于圣迭戈(San Diego)举行。AME 出版社科学编辑小分队已经抵到圣迭戈,完成会议注册和布展。我们的展位“AME Publishing Company”在展区 No. 2218 , 欢迎参加 AUA 的国内同仁来展区一聚。AME 将在 AUA 期间与大家分享更多泌尿领域国际专家访谈,会议资讯和趣闻故事。

你是否曾经想过,如果当年没有选择成为一名医生,你现在会从事哪种行业?你的“人生未了清单”(Bucket List)上有哪些事情还没完成?在医生这个职业上摸爬打滚、奋斗多年的你,回首往事,会给现在的年轻医生提供哪些建议?今天笔者和大家分享 AUA 主办方 (http://www.aua2016.org/) 对8位泌尿领域颇有成就的专家的采访,一起来看看这些牛人们是如何回答这三个问题的。

在一个提供指导的环境里,你应该沉浸其中,让自己学得越多越好,这样对你以后独立工作有很大用处。(Immerse yourself and learn as much as you can in a supervised environment; it will be very helpful when you are practicing independently.)

上面8位教授的回答,是否引起你的共鸣呢?你呢?如果不做医生,你会做啥?你的“人生未了清单”(Bucket List)上有哪件事还没完成吗?你会给年轻医师一个什么样的建议呢?也许你现在是一名医生,但那些曾经的梦想,却不一定和医学相关;也许你还年轻,技能尚为稚嫩,但常从“Patients first” 角度思考问题,享受整个成长过程,你必然有一天能破茧成蝶。当然,最让笔者动容的,还是许多医生教授的父母心。值得一提的是,今年 AUA 举办的日期恰逢母亲节,本届会议的主席特意发表声明解释会议日期冲突的缘由,可见这些医生非常重视和家人相处的时光。最后,提前祝愿天下所有的妈妈们,母亲节快乐!
