She writes a bi-weekly column titled 'Diagnosis' for the New York Times Magazine. This column, which Dr. Sanders created in 2002 served as the inspiration for the television show 'House MD', on which she served as a technical adviser.
I encourage you to acknowledge and love the doctor you aspire to be. Cherish it, become it. Do it for the sake of your patients. Do it for your own sake, and the sake of those who love you. And finally, do it for the future of medicine. We are depending on you, you can do it, I can hardly wait. - Lisa Sanders, MD, FACP
