This doctor was happily on his way to obtaining the American Dream until he decided to take seriously Jesus' command to “Come, follow me.”
Every year tens of thousands hopeful students apply to medical school. This is the story of one doctor's medical journey, how he was happily on his way to obtaining the American Dream until he decided to take seriously Jesus' command to “Come, follow me.”
Join him as he explores the hidden cost of medical education and Christian discipleship. For those with a burden to serve God in any future vocation, take care you do not get side-tracked by the false promises of this world. What can you do now so that when you are done with your training and ready to do God's work, you still want to?
From the author: Before you jump on the medical school bandwagon, the four-year, one-hundred-thousand dollar question you should ask is, “Is it all worth it?”
Endorsement: “Strategic students know that today's decisions lead to tomorrow's reality. When truth is truth it applies in all contexts. While Dr. Tsai emphasizes his lessons learned as a student of medicine, these insights of wisdom apply to all believers who happen to be students.” – Nick Yphantides, MD; Chief Medical Officer, San Diego County
