Through the generosity of Charles R. Millikan, D. Min., vice president for spiritual care and values integration, an annual award competition was established at The Methodist Hospital among the resident staff. For the inaugural competition, residents submitted a poem or essay of 1,000 words or less for the topic, “On Being a Doctor.” A committee of five was selected from The Methodist Hospital Education Institute to judge the entries. Criteria for judging were established by this committee. This is the third-place winning essay and last in the series.
