The Heroism of Incremental Care

An Atul Gawande article from The New Yorker emphasizing the relevance of primary care in today’s healthcare system.

I was recommended this article at the beginning of my third year family medicine rotation. I never intended to enter primary care during the first two years of medical school. After rotating for 6 weeks in my physician mentor’s practice, I began to see the broad impact a family doctor can have in healthcare. Gwande’s article portrays many of the insights I’ve gained in the last month and a half.
