Book description:

“As a resident doctor, you occupy two worlds simultaneously,” notes Dr. Vivian Tam in her introduction to this ground-breaking anthology. “Occupying this liminal space is one of the most challenging, rewarding, and dizzyingly fast-paced journeys most of us have been on.”

One resident navigates the emotions behind her decision to switch programs; another experiences the sacrifices of starting a family during residency; another switches from doctor to patient with a case of appendicitis. Throughout, the writers and artists in this anthology depict the challenges, rewards, and lessons of this unique time in a physician’s life, as only residents could.
