So I'm starting medical school and doing my white coat ceremony this afternoon. Apparently the school thinks it's a great idea to ask each student (out of an entering class about 150) 'what they will bring to medicine' summed up in one word.
While I'm a creative person, I think that there will be far too many instances of 'compassion' and 'caring,' and I want have a word that's unique (ironic right, that I'm coming to you guys), but I figured the hivemind > my mind in this case.
Help me pick a word that's unique, but not too far out there. (Last year's entering class had an instance of bringing 'sexy back' which I found funny, but really don't want to do.)
