What I Wish I Knew Before I Became a Surgeon

Qaali Hussein, MD, FACS

I knew at a very young age, maybe at seven or eight, that I wanted to be doctor.  I knew I wanted to learn how the human body worked, why we took medications to treat ailments, and how these medications worked.  

As I grew up I became more fascinated with science and how the different organs in the body functioned.  I became interested in the field of surgery.  In high school, I visited the anatomy lab of the school where I would end up doing my surgery residency. I was fascinated at how engaging the faculty were and how their eyes lit up as they showed us the heart and lungs of a cadaver and how they worked together to sustain life.

I was hooked.  I was going to be a surgeon.
