Process: Reflections from the Path to Doctor
Over the past year and a half, I have been compiling an anthology of reflections from medical students, junior doctors and residents from around the world about their experiences in medicine. The anthology, provisionally called Process: Reflections from the Path to Doctor, is now under contract with University Press of New England.
Unlike similar collections, the anthology focuses on the trainees themselves, and highlights the psychosocial implications and effects of medical training. I hope the collection serves as therapy of sorts to medical trainees and builds a sense of camaraderie among colleagues around the world.
Process will also give aspiring medical trainees better insight into medical training and provide patients and community members with an understanding of the forces that shape their doctors.
On a larger scale, I hope the anthology will spur necessary conversations about the successes and shortcomings of our current health education systems.
The anthology is open to submissions till March 10, 2018. It will be a wonderful to have a variety of voices and perspectives in the collection.
