Margo and ShiraI can’t wait for you to meet Margo Roemeling and Shira Einstein! They’re in med school together, and their friendship might bring as many tears to your eyes as it did mine. If all I had to show for my radio work was introducing you to them, it was a good run. Shira and Margo are both 2018 MD Candidates at Oregon Health & Science University, and heard the calling to become doctors because of their childhood experiences. For Shira it was her teenage battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and for Margo, it was the need to take on a parental role with her younger siblings.

Shira and MargoJust how difficult is med school? Do you have what it takes? Does it still take someone who can memorize seemingly limitless information and function on significantly reduced hours of sleep? How important is the friendship between Shira Einstein and Margo Roemeling to each woman hanging in and getting through it? They bonded over their difficult childhoods, keep each other afloat through the inevitable “I don’t know if I can hack med school” feelings, and have a lot of fun.
