Abstract:

"Twenty-five years after graduating from America’s top medical schools, twenty-five physicians from a dozen specialties share the joys and struggles of learning and practicing medicine today. After studying at Brown, Cornell, Emory, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Yale and a dozen more medical schools, these doctors went on to become emergency medicine physicians, family practitioners, gynecologists, internists, obstetricians, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and surgeons across the United States. Today, while working alongside the clinical soldiers and scientists protecting our citizens from this pandemic, these physicians tell us of the gratification, joy and fulfillment of their work coupled with their experiences of uncertainty, fear, and disappointment practicing medicine over three decades. Their essays, stories, drawings, and poems form a unique anthology, capturing their aspirations and struggles as students and their challenges and successes as physicians, parents, and teachers. Not surprisingly, when asked whether they would make the same career choice or whether they would recommend a career in medicine for their children, they reaffirm the decision to become doctors. Perhaps such predictability is best explained by an innovative thinker and gracious teacher from the past century, Albert Einstein, who said, “only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” These physicians have done just that."--
