Guest Host: Matthew Felling

The hours are grueling, the pressures enormous, the rewards ambiguous. Medical training has long been a tough, high-stakes grind, one that makes many new doctors question why they got into the profession in the first place. We talk to two doctors about the inner doubts and pressures they confronted, and how they overcame them.
