First Do No Self Harm

Oxford University Press

Chapter 21 discusses the most challenging and rewarding elements in adapting to the demands of becoming a physician and explores the issues that can stress medical students, including physical challenges, long work hours, emotional regulation, and pressures to succeed professionally. The author focuses on the life lessons that she gleaned from her experiences as a medical student, including the need to have balance in life and to have appreciation for home life. She notes that patient experiences and the stories they share have touched and shaped her as a physician, and she urges other medical students to appreciate these as a vital informal learning process.
