Off the Shelf, Poetry Thursdays

Care by the Clock

In clinics bustling, time’s in demand,
We blend precision with a caring hand,
Not just cases or names on the roll call,
But, patients’ stories, our familial call.

In fast-paced rounds, where charts hold steady,
Efficiency’s rope tied tight, we must be ready,

Within the dissonance of each ailing part,
The challenge lies in the balance of an art.

Poetry Thursdays is an initiative that highlights poems by medical students. If you are interested in contributing or would like to learn more, please contact our editors.
