Medicine has changed — as an emergency doctor, I have too
from The Philadelphia Inquirer (opinion)
Priya E. Mammen writes, "As an emergency physician, I don't have my own patients, but instead am available to whoever needs me in emergency care. In this role, I have realized the system I work in is ideal for rapid response to immediate crisis: heart attacks, strokes, gunshot wounds. As harrowing as those life-or-death crises are, what is far more difficult to tackle are the long-term problems facing my patients: flawed social systems that constantly left them vulnerable."
