Ultimate Doctor Playlist

Ultimate Doctor Playlist

To commemorate the end of medical school, I compiled a playlist of ultimate celebration! Encompassing the gamut of medical student experience, I tried to include songs that represented the joy of saving patient’s lives, the tragedy of losing people, the misery of late night studying, the dirge of night calls, the weight of gargantuan loans, the exhilaration of science, the bitterness of health care reality, and the hope of doing what we were made to do.

As I was compiling the playlist, I was actually surprised to see how many songs about relationships use metaphors or allegories about health, science, and medicine. I found some really great songs, although I’ll admit one or two of them may be tenuously related to medicine! Feel free to comment and suggest songs!
