Hello! As Jon and Trev have been preparing to start their residency programs we sat down to have a chat with one of our most influential teachers at Queen's Medical School, Dr. Jackie Duffin. Dr. Duffin is a medical historian and hematologist, she has written numerous books on the history of medicine (https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/contributor/author/jacalyn-duffin/) and she has also written pieces that have been featured in the CMAJ (http://www.cmaj.ca/content/165/12/1609.full) and the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/06/opinion/pondering-miracles-medical-and-religious.html?_r=0). We sat down to talk with her about her journey to medical school, how she became a medical historian and advice for aspiring physicians! As always please send your questions, guest suggestions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
