Worth the Cost?


From the back cover

What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Matthew 16:26

Every year some tens of thousands hopeful students apply to medical school. I wonder how many really thought through what they are signing up for. This is the story of my medical journey, how I was happily on my way to obtaining the American Dream until I decided to take seriously Jesus’ command to “Come, follow me.” Before you jump on the medical school bandwagon, the four-year, one-hundred-thousand dollar question you should be asking is, “Is it all worth it?”

Join me as I explore the hidden cost of medical education and Christian discipleship. For those with a burden to serve God in any future vocation, take care you do not get side-tracked by the false promises of this world. What can you do now so that when you are done with your training and ready to do God’s work, you still want to?

Strategic students know that today’s decisions lead to tomorrow’s reality. When truth is truth it applies in all contexts. While Dr. Tsai emphasizes his lessons learned as a student of medicine, these insights of wisdom apply to all believers who happen to be students. Nick Yphantides, MD Chief Medical Officer, San Diego County
