Carolyn Hart, MD, practices neurology in Charlotte, NC. In 2002, she served as president of the Mecklenburg County Medical Society and decided to take the opportunity of preparing the monthly president’s message for the Society’s publication, Mecklenburg Medicine, to present a series of letters to a medical student, W, one of whose parents is a physician and both of whom are friends of hers. Her thoughts serve as a conversational guide for health care professionals at any point in their careers.
Dr Hart and Mecklenburg Medicine were kind enough to allow publication of the letters, slightly revised and titled Fondly, Carolyn, in the Forum, the quarterly publication of the North Carolina Medical Board, soon after their appearance in Mecklenburg Medicine. This series of letters is also presented here.
