Overview

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.

About the Author

Twenty-five doctors working as emergency medicine physicians, family practitioners, gynecologists, internists, obstetricians, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and surgeons across the United States share their personal insights and oversights of learning, practicing, and teaching medicine for the past three decades. From their medical school experiences at Brown, Cornell, Emory, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Yale and a dozen more medical schools, to the present day of practicing among a pandemic, they write about the struggle and reward of being doctors in the 2020s. These seventeen women and eight men transformed their opportunity to study medicine into careers that profoundly impacted the lives of their communities and as well as their own. Compiled by Par Bolina, M.D. who resides in Nashville, Tennessee, their stories describe the remarkable lifelong journey of becoming a doctor.
