  2. Dude, we’d all fail the test set up for failure by the education system, yes, doctors/med school students need to study ‘narrative competence’ and make time to be the dr’s they set out to when applying to med school. It’s not all fun and orgo.

    • Hey, Erez! Wow, how are you? I have about a year left before I’m done with the diss, then I hurl myself into the great and terrible abyss known as the job market in the humanities. Things are good though.
