Today was a day of high soaring rhetoric and then a 3 hour lesson on child abuse. Since the former is far more fun to write/read about than the latter, I'll stick to that.
As of this year we are, for all intents and purposes, doctors. The burden of doctorhood is, as of now, in effect. What burden you ask? When you go into medicine, you are given amazing privilege. You get to learn and do things very few people get to do and you get paid well to do it. The burden is that you are never not on the job. Compared to nearly every other profession (police are another good exception), when you clock out from doctoring, you are still expected to behave in a manner becoming of a doctor. This is because doctors' jobs are predicated on trust and actions off the clock can damage that trust just as much as actions while wearing that white coat.
TIL: If a history of child abuse is discovered on a patient after that patient has already turned 18, it cannot be reported to child protective services... it can, however, be reported to the police.
Sorry it was a little uninteresting today; I promise tomorrow should make up for it.
