What needs to change in medicine for it to be sustainable?

"A prospect seeking a career in medicine must start with their own awareness of boundaries and perfectionism before entering the field. This inner work must be indoctrinated in schools and encouraged through residencies and mentorships. Furthermore, administration must model this and valued it as highly as continuing education, credentialing, and skill training.

In a profession that is innately human, we have to bring humanity back for it to be sustainable."

Amanda Gwin is a nurse and physician assistant.
