"I came into his room on a mission to complete one more routine task, and I left knowing that sometimes the most powerful medicine comes in the form of a tangible expression of humanity, the careful attention to the soul." Resident Cheralyn Hendrix remembers a patient who reminded her to choose compassion above all else because patients and their ailments are more than a list of tasks to be accomplished. Her essay was published in the Teaching and Learning Moments column in the January 2019 issue of Academic Medicine. Read her essay at academicmedicine.org.
