“American medicine has always been riven by internal rivalries. … The result is a culture that does not always prioritize kindness in interactions between health care providers. This has thankfully not been my experience during my reassignment … The COVID-19 outbreak will prove to be a seminal moment in the development of an entire generation of physicians-in-training. I hope that the bonds we form at the frontlines prove to be permanent.”

Resident Kunal Sindhu (@sindhu_kunal) reflects on his redeployment to an internal medicine ward during the COVID-19 pandemic and the kindness and consideration he was shown by his new colleagues.

This essay was published in the Teaching and Learning Moments column in the September 2020 issue of Academic Medicine. Read the essay at
