“Looking back on these words at the end of my rotation, I understand what I had felt, and I feel confident naming it: the futility of medicine. We can comfort and treat patients, but there’s nothing more we can do after a certain point. As a bright-eyed medical student who wrote on all her medical school applications that she wanted to save lives, it was and still is difficult for me to understand that.”
Shereen Jeyakumar is a medical student.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “My first end-of-life conversation.”
