Resilience is a core necessity in medicine. Resilience is toughness. Resilience is tenacity. Resilience is recovering and coming back for more.

You need resilience to survive the long education and training for nearly every role in medicine. And as a patient, you need resilience to just make it through not only your acute care but the often weeks, months, or years of healing that happen afterward.

Day in and day out, we call on our own resilience to get through difficult situations, tragic experiences, and more — so that we can keep doing what we do best.

Now, I think it’s important to note that, usually, we feature storytellers who are healthcare professionals — but often resilience is even more important on the patient side.

Sure, we as doctors, nurses, PAs, NPs, etc., are on a journey with our patients — but it’s our patients that need to live it, breathe it, and deal with it every day. It brings a new level of resilience when the healthcare is not just your professional life, but your entire life — as it often is for our patients.
