About the Author:

Dr. Stephanie Benjamin is an award winning writer and lifelong diarist. After surviving medical school, she moved to California for her emergency medicine residency. She is currently the EMS & Disaster medicine fellow at UC San Diego.

Outside of work and writing, Stephanie is a painter, fencer, climber, aerialist, surfer, prepper, and dog owner.

About Love, Sanity, or Medical School:

As a medical student secretly turned gonzo journalist, I capture the progressive erosion of well-being and sense of altruism that happens to future doctors during the most vitriolic year of medical school: third year.  Subtly typing away on my blue iPad mini, I record the entire year in real time as it unfolds around me.  Each chapter in my nonfiction novel is a rotation in a different medical specialty, spread throughout different hospitals, within a small Midwest City.
