There is a paragraph in what follows where Professor Steve Robson, the AMA president, writes:

“As someone who has experienced the most profound feelings of inadequacy at the birth of my career, who faced a night so black it was only the luck of timing I survived it and who was gifted a professional life marked by wonder and renewal as an obstetrician, I want to issue a plea to young doctors to hang in there, reach out and believe in the future.”
