In brief: Get to help people!
The main reason students go on to medical school to become doctors is to help people (lots of people) and make the world a better place.
On healthtap, we enjoy helping "strangers in need", people with questions, from all over the country. Healthtap gives each doctor a web page where people can go to get information about the doctor's office practice. Our patients can learn a lot on healthtap, too.
