In an effort to present the challenges of being a physician-in-training and promote humanism in medicine, the in-Training.org staff teamed up with an advisory group established by the Gold Foundation to publish the book in-Training: Stories From Tomorrow’s Physicians. This book provides a remarkable collection of more than 100 narratives sorted into themes such as anatomy classes, clerkships, student burnout, patient interactions, and dealing with death and dying. The book’s strength lies within the essays, which give student readers and contributors the opportunity to think and express themselves in a creative way. The questions at the end of each essay, on the other hand, may be seen as both a strength and weakness in the collection. One may find that while many of these questions initiate serious reflective insight, a number of questions are written simply to reiterate an author’s viewpoint without asking the reader to ponder much further.
