“A terrifying privilege”: Residency during the COVID-19 outbreak

Association of American Medical Colleges: Salomeh (Sally) Salari, a first-year OB-GYN resident in obstetrics and gynecology at the School of Medicine/ University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, describes her experience of assisting medical efforts to stem the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and treat patients, writing: “My instinct to serve the public prevails over the instinct to self-protect. … the only thing scarier than contracting COVID-19 is abandoning my team and my patients in this hour of great need. … a terrifying privilege that I among countless others have volunteered to perform.”
