I'm currently in my 2nd year of college studying biology. I became an ER scribe two months ago, and ever since I started working side by side with the ER physicians I have began to doubt myself (feeling as if I am not cut out to ever be a physician). Does this mean I am not good enough to ever be a doctor?

This is a very common situation for a lot of people! So much that it has been dubbed "Imposter Syndrome", a feeling that makes you doubt your capacity. You have to remember that the ER physicians you are working alongside have gone through years of training to be where they are at now, and that you will also have to undergo that training. Good things in life require time, and they usually put you in an uncomfortable situation, however that is excellent for promoting growth. What I recommend is to avoid coming up with negative thoughts, because it could well be that you are the only one who thinks you are not capable. Stay confident and be realistic! You will have to undergo years of training, but i am confident that you will be much more confident after said experience.
