Medelita: Making Physicians Strong


I was given a challenge to write about how to give physicians thicker skin. I thought about this and realized thick skin comes from having joy in a profession and that in part comes from having pride in a profession.

Pride in being a physician has three strong pillars:



Human vulnerability

Self Sacrifice


I wrote of four patients that helped me to solidify my role better with pride and thus joy. I hope that these stories give physicians the breath and belief they need to continue practice against the doubt fire.

No one can argue that physicians warehouse experience, are themselves vulnerable and thus admirable, and self sacrifice.

We exist to care for our brothers and sisters. The equation is based on love.
