Ode to our clerks and interns

I REMEMBER the morning when I did rounds earlier than usual. I am a morning person, and I like the peace and quiet of the wards at 6 am, still devoid of the usual crowd of fellows and residents looking for the same charts. I saw one of my clerks pushing our patient's stretcher. I learned that he came in at 5 am to make sure the patient didn't miss the cranial CT scan schedule. I was so moved by his dedication, realizing I wasn't like that at all when I was a medical student.

I was browsing through my private online photo folder when I chanced upon some photos taken during my Ward and Medical ICU rotations. The interns are now reviewing for the Boards. The clerks are enjoying their break—in three weeks, they'll be donning their white coats.

I'm posting the photos for posterity.
