Today, I helped interview the 2021-2022 class for Baylor College of Medicine's hand surgery fellowship. The applicants were extremely qualified. It seems that it gets more competitive every year. It's nice to be reminded of the bright people that give up their youth to get extra training so they can be masters of their craft. It's also a great privelege that I can help train the next wave of hand surgeons. We have four fellows per year, and many of them take what they've learned and go all over the world. It certainly encourages me to keep myself up-to-date on all the newest techniques and latest research. In many ways, I believe being a teacher and educator makes me a better surgeon. It also helps remind me the underlying reason why we all chose to become physicians, and that is to help people.
