The McGovern Center congratulates MS4 and medical humanities student, Fatema Shipchandler for her recent publication, “Maintaining Thick and Thin Skin”:

“Third-year rotations forced me to reckon with my emotional capacity as a human and future physician. With each patient encounter, I had to decide whether my skin was too thick or too thin.”

Shipchandler worked with Rebecca Lunstroth, JD, MA, to develop the piece and credits Lunstroth for her mentorship and insights. The piece appears in the From the Wards section of in-Training.
