“I wish I had started this journey sooner, but am glad I decided at a my advanced age to turn everything around and go to med school. Especially in the past two years there is no place on earth I'd rather be than where I am right now.”

Professional title:

Medical Educator, Crap/Fan Separation Specialist

What do you do?

I stop the clock on something that could kill you, keep you alive, until you can be seen and ideally cured by someone with specialized knowledge about the thing that ails you.

Why?

I am in emergency medicine because it deals with the most interesting 15 minutes of all other specialities. I see how I and my team make a difference every day, not (only) by applying medicine but also by maintaining the humanity of the situation and those who are caught in it, as health care workers, patients, or families.

What should we read?

"The Citadel" by AJ Cronin, a very old novel about the inequities and inequalities in medical care.
