Beyond the Oath

The stories, advice and random thoughts of a third year osteopathic medical student as he fumbles his way toward becoming a competent physician.

Doctors Tell All—and It’s Bad - Atlantic

"The alarming part is how fast doctors’ empathy wanes. Studies show that it plunges in the third year of medical school; that’s exactly when initially eager and idealistic students start seeing patients on rotation. The problem, Danielle Ofri writes, isn’t some elemental Hobbesian lack of sympathy; students (like the doctors they will become) are overworked and overtired, and they realize that there is too much work to be done in too little time….Medicine today values intervention far more than it values care.”
