Abstract

The internists in the authors' study wrote about miracles and mistakes, sharing their own lives and their patients' lives, witnessing profound experiences, and receiving acknowledgment for a job well done. Through these experiences, they gained a deeper appreciation of what it means to be a human being and a doctor. They learned that their caring actions meant everything to their patients.
