The founders of in-Training, a popular online magazine for medical students, have published a new collection of peer-reviewed narratives from the magazine in a new book, “in-Training: Stories from Tomorrow’s Physicians.”
Grouped by subject, the essays cover issues relevant to nearly all medical students: death and dying, burnout, work-life balance, global health, patient interactions and the learning curve physicians-in-training face. Each essay is followed by discussion questions prepared by in-Training editors, who are medical students themselves.
“When we selected pieces for ‘in-Training: Stories from Tomorrow’s Physicians,’ we chose narratives that represent a snapshot in time of the current cohort of medical students, their passions and their aspirations for the future of medicine,” wrote founders Ajay Major, MD, and Aleena Paul, MD, in the book’s preface. “These pieces are raw and emotional, and will resonate with students at all stages of training.”
The book is available for purchase online.
