The "How Does a Medical Resident Work?" Edition

In the season three premiere of Working, Slate culture writer Aisha Harris interviews Alexandra Charrow, a medical resident at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She describes what a typical day is like, how she’s learning to grapple with death, and how her job isn’t at all like Grey’s Anatomy.
Charrow is in her second year studying both medicine and dermatology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard Joint Dermatology program (which includes Brigham and Women's, Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel, Children's Hospital, the VA, and Lahey Clinic).
