Read article – An opinion piece by Christiaan Rees, Geisel ’16, Guarini ’18, in which he discusses how some medical schools are being asked to expedite the graduation of fourth-year students who would be willing to begin their residency early, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Rees reflects on his fellow classmates’ response to COVID-19, and medical students’ willingness to help. “I had envisioned that my final three months of medical school would be an opportunity to rejuvenate before beginning what will undoubtedly be one of the most trying years of my training,” says Reese. “I had planned to travel—to drive cross-country and to hike in the Rocky Mountains. I had hoped to think a little less about science and a little more about art—to read, to watch films, to frequent the woodworking studio again. But if I am summoned, I will go without either reservation or regret.”

Read article – An opinion piece by Cassie Kosarek, Geisel ’20, in which she discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the importance of preventative care. “I am impressed by the dedication of my attending physicians and residents.

Overall, I am proud to be joining this guild,” says Kosarek. “But I am also coming of age in medicine at a time when it has become obvious that heroic healthcare workers and our reactionary methods are no longer sustainable. Our lack of preparedness and de-emphasis on chronic disease prevention likely portends worse health outcomes for many COVID-19 patients.”

Read article – An opinion piece by Amal Cheema, Geisel ’23, in which she discusses why teens and 20-somethings should give up hanging out with friends during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I believe young people can change the course of the pandemic.
