2013 Humanism in Medicine Essay Contest: Caregiving as Good Doctoring

This year, the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism in Medicine Essay Contest asked students: “What do you think are the barriers to humanism in medicine today?” and “Who is the ‘good’ doctor?”

Mr. David B. Duong, a third-year student at Harvard Medical School, won 2nd place with his essay, “Caregiving as Good Doctoring,” published in Academic Medicine‘s November issue.

Mr. Duong was kind enough to record his essay for us; listen below.

    In our homecare, if we feel burned out, or feel a bit impatient, our head nurse or co-workers are there to switch task for minute or so just to keep things in order. It is good to work in an environment where every one else feel you and concerned about you.
