《為何要補習?》(四)

為何特別想起 Leggo,是因為最近看了他重新報讀醫科的 Personal Statement,被他深深感動了。

跟我感情比較好的學生,都會給我看看他們的 Personal Statements,讓我向他們分享一些語文和內容上 的意見。

報讀大學時,考生們要撰寫一份數百字的個人介紹,申述為何想報讀所選的學科,有何相關的經驗及才 能等等。報導醫科的 Personal Statement 其實很難寫,因大家想報讀的原因也差不多,都是希望懸壺濟 世;雖然有心,但容易流於千篇一律。

Leggo 的 Personal Statement 的動人之處,是他願意直接地面對失敗,重新審視自己為何想當醫生。當 大部份考生的 Personal Statements 都在炫耀自己的強項,他勇敢地談及自己的不足和從中學懂的東西。

去年暑假,他前往中國偏遠地區當義工,協助有眼疾的病人安全抵達檢驗的地方,看到有些病人在烈日 當空下步行數小時來求醫。令他最難忘的是,在替一位病人量血壓後,發現病人的血壓過高,不能符合 做手術的要求。當值的醫生吩咐 Leggo 再量一次。Leggo 大惑不解,問那位醫生為什麼,因這樣做對其 他病人不公平 (都說他是一頭牛,哈)。那位醫生向 Leggo 解釋血壓計的不準確性,和那位病人的白內障 已很嚴重,十分需要他們的幫助,所以勸 Leggo 再給他一次機會。

Leggo 當下領略了當醫生最重要的一樣東西,你認為是什麼呢?
