Adam Stern was a student at a state medical school before being selected to train as a psychiatry resident at one of the most prestigious programs in the country. His new and initially intimidating classmates were high achievers from the Ivy League and other elite universities around the nation. 
In his memoir, Stern pulls back the curtain on the intense and emotionally challenging lessons he and his fellow doctors learned while studying the human condition, and ultimately, the value of connection. 

In this interview, Stern combines his clear-eyed concern for the field of psychiatry as well as poignant memories about his residency at Harvard.  A must-listen for anyone considering psychiatry.
