Dear readers,

The MDLinx team is excited to launch an exclusive new column, Caring During COVID, dedicated to helping you comprehend and cope with one of the most confounding healthcare issues facing modern medicine.

COVID has escalated already high burnout rates, and for many, it has left psychological and emotional scars. Written by subject matter experts and healthcare professionals, this new feature speaks directly to you—clinicians who are still facing the realities of the pandemic 3 years later.

In our column Real Talk, Kristen Fuller, MD, noted: "Working as a physician in the ER at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic was one of the darkest points in my career." It was also one of the heaviest drinking periods of her life, as she found herself swilling wine in the early light of morning to numb the emotional pain from her night shifts.

Each article in Caring During Covid aims to:

  • Share first-hand experiences, unique perspectives, and lessons straight from the heart of those working directly with COVID.

  • Highlight new research that addresses knowledge gaps in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

  • Offer credible guidance that is relevant, relatable, and actionable.

Whether you're a specialist, family practitioner, ED doctor—or any other healthcare professional working with COVID—we're certain you'll find this column a tool to help you both professionally and personally. 

We invite you to share your own experiences and knowledge. Submit any question or topic you'd like to see covered, and let us know if you'd like to share a story or be a guest author.

All the best,

The MDLinx Team
