Who Am I?
My name is Noam.
I am 22 years old and a second-year medical student in Canada. I am also a lot of other things, but we'll get to that later.
I have been passionate about pursuing a career in medicine since I was much too young to be thinking of such things.
At 5 years old I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Spending hours within those hospital hallways showed me both the good and the bad of medicine. It showed me the amazing things I can do for my patients but also the gaps that still exist in the healthcare field. I realized that treating a patient entails much more than the treatments you prescribe.
What is Wellness MD?
I started this blog and my social media presence midway through my first year of medical school in order to advocate for the importance of living a balanced healthy lifestyle. Whether you are a fellow medical student or any one else, work-life balance and making healthy sustainable choices is so important!
I have been passionate about mental health advocacy and student wellness for many years. I also love to cook and bake healthy recipes to share easy, delicious and simple ways to make your diet nutritious and sustainable.
I want to show all pre-meds and other ambitious students that it is possible to have a life outside of medical school. You should not give up yourself, your hobbies, your values, your friends, your family or anything else. All it takes is a good mindset and some time management skills.
