    Beyond the Chief Concern

    "When I later expressed my surprise at the depth of that encounter compared with the prior 12-minute skin cancer appointment, my attending simply reminded me that we were there to treat the patients and not their diseases....While this patient’s disease was objectively improving, her health was not, and it was our duty to fix that."
    Medical student Anokhi Saklecha reflects on what she learned about treating patients holistically and addressing more than just their chief concern, from an encounter with a patient with vitiligo.

    Schrödinger’s Resident: Redeployment in the Age of COVID-19

    Schrödinger’s Resident: Redeployment in the Age of COVID-19

    "American medicine has always been riven by internal rivalries. … The result is a culture that does not always prioritize kindness in interactions between health care providers. This has thankfully not been my experience during my reassignment … The COVID-19 outbreak will prove to be a seminal moment in the development of an entire generation of physicians-in-training. I hope that the bonds we form at the frontlines prove to be permanent."
    Resident Kunal Sindhu (@sindhu_kunal) reflects on his redeployment to an internal medicine ward during the COVID-19 pandemic and the kindness and consideration he was shown by his new colleagues.

    The COVID-19 Curriculum

    "The COVID-19 curriculum has also taught me that being a doctor isn’t only about giving a perfect presentation, choosing the right antibiotic, or making the right diagnosis. It is about using your knowledge to identify a need in humanity and taking action to fill it."
    Medical student Kate Rosen (@KateKateRosen) reflects on how her education has accelerated during COVID-19 in ways she didn't expect.
