Common Medical School Interview Question #10
“How will X activity help you become a better physician?”
My hobby as an amateur archer has contributed to the skills I will use as a future physician. Archery takes a great deal of skill, patience, and adaptation. It requires superb hand-eye coordination, flexibility, and physical conditioning to properly draw a bow, and it demands high mental focus and persistence to hit a target. My hobby has helped me develop an abundance of dedication and patience, and these are skills which also make an excellent doctor. Most of all, I think my hobby has taught me the value of doing something correctly through rigorous practice, and how repetitive practice can yield an incredible skill.
