A chief resident about to graduate wrote the following to me:
I just read — twice — the New Yorker’s review of Henry Marsh’s memoir you tweeted about. Wow.
It seems like he is grappling with so many of the things I’m feeling now, as I’m trying to sort out if I’m trained “enough” to head out into the world. Of course, Marsh is at the other end of his career. So fascinating how the same anxieties can flourish and grow in entirely different soil.
I want to read the book, but I wonder if now is the right time. Seriously! Might be better to wait a few years.
Only 38 more days to go until I complete residency.
Congratulations on finishing your training and becoming self-aware.
