Every bit of objective evidence should convince you that a current medical student is superior to students of the past.
- USMLE Scores 15 years ago were an average of 200, now it is 222
- IQ rises by three points per decade
- Passing rates on Internal Medicine Boards have risen from 75% to over 90%
- Attending Re-certification rates on boards are LOWER than for fresh residents
Would you consider that you, the current student, is the beauty of the world? the ‘Flower’ of your generation? Perhaps there is no one else to save the world, except you. You are intelligent, qualified and capable. You have only to realize that there is NO ONE else who will do these great things such as the cure of autism or diabetes EXCEPT you!
