Exploring Your Passions and Interests
As a person of multiple interests, Dr. Anglade has been involved in OBGYN, emergency medicine, and family medicine. When she got pregnant, she decided to take a break from practicing medicine. She found a job in utilization management that allowed her to work from home. Dr. Anglade has always been curious about voice acting, and so she explored this interest by joining a class. After honing her skills even further, she has been a voice over talent since 2019.
Don’t Lose Yourself in Medicine
Becoming a physician is a long and arduous process. Get to know yourself and your purpose for getting into medicine. Every now and then, evaluate if what you’re doing still makes you happy. Sometimes priorities shift and that’s okay. Acknowledge the changes and then re-align your lifestyle to your purpose. Have meetings with yourself regularly to make sure you’re on the right track. Choose a school or residency program that makes you feel fulfilled. If you have something you want to pursue, take initiative to make it happen by talking to your superiors, joining a community, or simply trying it out.
