    “Being a doctor to me means being a source of comfort, someone people can depend on when they are feeling worried, anxious or ill. The fact that people are depending you to show up as the best version of yourself and give everything that you’ve got is the thing that motivates me to be an excellent doctor.”

    “To me, being a doctor in the future would still mean to primarily care for patients. In addition, it will also involve building and embracing technologies that augment our capabilities and allow us to do more for our patients as well as our fellow healthcare workers. There are numerous challenges in healthcare, and I hope that technology and innovation will be used to alleviate many of these challenges.”

    “Being a doctor in the future means making sacrifices in order to fulfil the heavy responsibilities of being one, which I believe is going to be worthwhile for the sake of improving the lives of our patients. This journey of becoming a doctor and maturing as one will undoubtedly be arduous but having the faith that there may be positive outcomes with the patients who will be under my care means a lot to me.”

    “Several years ago, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition. To be on the receiving end of ‘incurability’ as a patient shed light on two things. Firstly, despite the wonderful things that modern medicine is capable of, it doesn’t have all the answers and that represents so much potential for greater care in the years to come, which I am hopeful to be part of. Secondly, it highlighted to me the importance of the psychosocial element of the doctor’s role. Having answers to questions isn’t the ‘be all and end all’ of medicine, and I hope that I too can offer solace as best as I can to those who need it.”

    “As the field of medicine advances, it will be an exciting time where more and more questions will be answered and explored, and I would like to be part of this exploration. At the same time, I would also like to help ensure that this advancement benefits more people by increasing health education and accessibility, which is also an aspect of medicine that is becoming more and more prominent. Being a doctor in the future fills me with excitement and hope.”

    “It is an honour and privilege to be in a position to bring hope to patients and help them overcome their illnesses but also a huge responsibility. The weight of the white coat is something I will constantly remind myself of on this journey of becoming a good doctor. And in the future, it would be dream come true for me to be a paediatrician—to work towards the healthy development and alleviation of sickness for children in particular, as they have a special place in my heart.”

    “By joining the medical profession, I will be committing a lifetime to treating and caring for patients, which I believe is a great privilege and honour. I will also be part of a greater healthcare team that will be caring for Singapore’s ageing population and doing their best to keep any infectious disease under control. With the advancement in medical research and technology, I am also excited to discover new ways of diagnosing and treating patients in the future.”
