Dystopian Diary of a Medical Resident

Educational Objective
To understand the experiences of a medical resident
1 Credit CME

I love dystopian fiction. All the better when it has a “coming of age” bent. From early childhood favorites like The Giver to more recent indulgences like The Handmaid’s Tale, I marvel at the heroines, the moral dilemmas, and the fantasy of it all. I feel fondness for those characters—while maintaining distance between them and myself. How bad could it really get?

As a resident physician, I am starting to see those dystopian fables as prophecies more than fiction.
