From the earliest stages of our medical training, we encounter unimaginable experiences with our patients - inspiring, traumatic, joyful, and sometimes even humorous events. Too often, as physicians or doctors in training we talk about the suffering or recovery of patients, ignoring our own emotions after these events, letting them passively shape us until we dig ourselves into a bottomless abyss of burn out and resentment.

 

This is a book created by med students, for med students, doctors, pre-med students, and their loved ones to look backward, forward, and laterally on the wonderful world of medical school. This book offers a space to reflect on our emotions, process their meaning, and share them as tales of joy, sorrow, or humor, told from the perspective of medical students writing in a diary.

 

While the act of sharing emotion is itself therapeutic, reading these emotional challenges that we can all relate to is unifying and comforting, providing us with insight through the lessons conveyed in the light of a variety of feelings.

 

Let this book spark a powerful domino effect of change in medical education: in the way we teach physicians to create a safe space for inner reflection and expression of emotion to ultimately enhance physician wellness.
