Nathan,
I hope you can "rediscover" your humanity, it can be painful in your profession. BTW, something you might want to check out, in Crimea there's a University called "Simferopol State University", located not surprisingly in Simferopol. They have a medical school, it's a 6 year program, they have a program for general medicine and pediatrics. What is totally INTERESTING is that all of the classes are taught in ENGLISH! After graduation you need to pass a series of rigorous exams and then you can come back to the USA and do your residency. I know of one physician in the USA who has done this. Anyway thought you might want to know. Also, if you have room left over in your suitcase, why not fill it up with some medical supplies that might not be needed in the hospitals you work/study in and drop them off in Ukraine. I've done this a few times. You can literally save a life, and whoever saves even one life saves the whole world.
