Time for a story.

To state the blisteringly obvious, most healthcare professionals have spent the past few months figuring out how to fight COVID-19. The virus is pernicious and mean, and difficult to catch up with.

A compelling story could shake a reluctant patient out of their hesitance, or it could offer some hope to someone feeling hopeless. 

Here’s something I just learned: Columbia University has offered a graduate degree in Narrative Medicine since 2009.

I can personally attest to the power of telling the right story. 

Now more than ever, a lot of the candidates I work with are frustrated because they feel like their current career trajectory is stuck inside the wrong narrative. I help them find the right one.
