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 5 was selected from The Methodist Hospital Education Institute to judge the entries. Criteria for judging were established by this committee. The 2nd place winning essay is herein published. The 3rd place winning entry will be published in the next issue of this journal.
