Suzanne Koven, MD, a primary care physician and writer-in-residence at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, published an essay describing the challenges faced by women physicians, including her own struggle with so-called imposter syndrome—a long-held belief that she was not smart enough or good enough to be a “real” doctor. Read to great enthusiasm by thousands of women in medicine around the world. The essay prompted: Letter to a Young Female Physician: Notes from a Medical Life, a book of reflections offered to share with others, recounts experiences she has faced as a woman physician—from facing a pregnancy during her grueling residency and dealing with the illnesses of her child and parents while caring for patients to confronting the challenges brought on by the pandemic.
