[Perspectives] The marathon of diabetes

Midway through my first year of medical school, at a moment when my medical knowledge ranged little beyond the peregrinations of the seventh cranial nerve, my classmates and I were paroled from the windowless lecture hall in which we had been interred for the past 5 months and grouped together for a “clinical session”. The adjective clinical didn’t indicate the presence of actual patients, of course. Rather, it meant that we would aggregate around a stack of textbooks and attempt to communally puzzle through a printed case presentation that simulated an actual patient.
