I’ve two sons. The younger one wants to be an entomologist, while the eldest is still deciding on a career. I’d be perfectly happy if none of them chose to be a physician like myself. I think medical school is too darn long and so damn hard. I certainly survived it and so can they, but at what cost? My maternal instinct is to shield them from the hardships I experienced.
For my endocrine fellows who graduate today.
I was pleasantly surprised to receive a book from you yesterday. A parting gift as you graduate today. From the Eyes of A Healer, an anthology of medical anecdotes. I saw what you wrote on the back of the front cover. Consider this my response.
