I was thrilled to write this piece for the Gold Humanism Blog, May 16, 2014
Physician/writers: dual or duelling responsibilities was originally published in the Spring, 2011 issue of Atrium, a one of a kind arts and humanities journal published out of the outstanding Medical Humanities and Bioethics program at Feinberg Northwestern School of Medicine. It was founded and edited by Katie Watson, who shepherded the rarest of species, a journal that demanded to be read from cover to cover. Sadly, Atrium had to shut it’s doors. I’m grateful this essay was given another life in MedPage.
This reflective piece appeared in the University of Toronto Medical Journal in March 2010. Originally published in Ars Medica, Spring, 2007
