#10 Unbroken: I Was Going to Die; On the Edge of a Cliff; They Called Me Houdini

Undoubtedly these are hard times from the world — and particularly medicine. Like many of you, I’m a front-liner as an ER doctor. And we’re all in the same boat. Some of you may be quarantined, some may be sick, some of you may have your work shut down, while others are overwhelmed. These are scary and uncertain times for all and this couldn’t be a better time for this episode of Anamnesis with the theme Unbroken. Because yes, these are trying times, but like you’ve done through trying periods before, you’ll ultimately be Unbroken. Chapter One, I Was Going to Die: (2:30) An emergency physician is saved — barely — from drowning in a surfing accident. Story by Matthew Wetschler, MD, MPH. Chapter Two, On the Edge of a Cliff : (13:35) A resident gets comfortable taking the plunge. Story by Tolu Kehinde, MD.
