The vocation of the Catholic physician today

What do current medical students, residents, and practicing physicians wish they
had known about the formation process and day-to-day practice of medicine?

How do medical students and physicians sustain their enthusiasm when faced with
the grind of medical school, residency, and the “big business” of medicine?
How can physicians navigate challenging bioethical and conscience issues when
practicing medicine in settings with competing conceptions of care?
