ALiEM Book Club Wrap Up: A Temporary Matter

InterpreterofmaladiescoverThe November book club selection was a short story A Temporary Matter from the collection Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri. The goal in selecting the story was to gain an understanding of how doctors impact the lives of patients, even in the briefest of encounters. For this month, we do a 14-minute book club wrap up in podcast form!  Dr. Teresa Chan and I discuss the story, significance to clinical practice, and announce next month’s selection.
