What's it like to take a year off from a grueling medical school residency program and trade your scalpel for a reporter's notebook?
If nothing else, it's a shift in perspective.
Last May, Kristina Krohn, an Internal Medicine and Pediatrics resident at the University of Minnesota Medical School, hung up her white coat to explore the ever-changing world of global health news coverage and communication. Kristina was selected to be a Stanford-NBC News Fellow in Media and Global Health.
As her fellowship winds down (next year's fellow has already been announced), I chatted with Kristina about her experience -- the highlights (one-on-one time with Nancy Snyderman), and what she's learned so far. We also discussed her interest in media and how her time in the newsroom might affect her approach in the emergency room when she returns to her residency program soon.
