The Believer - The Empathy Exams by Leslie Jamison - @believermag
From the Believer magazine.
"We play a demographic menagerie: young jocks with ACL injuries and business executives nursing coke habits. STD Grandma has just cheated on her husband of forty years and has a case of gonorrhea to show for it. She hides behind her shame like a veil, and her med student is supposed to part the curtain. If he’s asking the right questions, she’ll have a simulated crying breakdown halfway through the encounter."Posted on 2014-02-05T06:18:14+0000
