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 winning essay is herein published. The 2nd and 3rd place winning entries will be published in subsequent issues of this journal.
