About the Book

About the Book Medical school can be challenging and lonely. However, sometimes all it takes to persevere are the encouraging words of friends, mentors, or most importantly - ourselves. Research shows that affirmations help transform challenges into manageable issues that can be successfully navigated. Since 2014, Georgetown University School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging has engaged in community-building initiatives promoting inclusivity and wellness, resulting in powerful narratives of students persevering through challenges and realizing they’re not alone. Full of motivation and confidence boosters, this book presents uplifting perspectives on navigating medical school as we have helped hundreds of students navigate its tumultuous tides. We explore topics such as imposter syndrome and addressing naysayers by sharing personal anecdotes from our journeys throughout academia and highlighting student pep talks. This collection is accompanied by an exhibition of artwork illustrated by Georgetown alums. With plenty of motivation and pep talk pick-me-up, Affirmations in Medicine is an excellent collection for future doctors and present leaders as they journey through the pathway of medicine.
