Ishani Ganguli, MD, is a journalist and a third-year resident physician in internal medicine/primary care at Massachusetts General Hospital. She studied biochemistry and Spanish at Harvard College and received her medical degree at Harvard Medical School in 2011. Ishani has written about science, medicine, and health policy for publications including The Washington Post, The New York Times, ABC News, The New England Journal of Medicine, and The Scientist. As a medical student, she wrote about medical education for Short White Coat when it was part of The Globe's White Coat Notes blog. In this version of Short White Coat, she’ll explore the impact of physician training on the quality of health care and provide a trainee’s perspective on efforts to improve it. Short white coats are the traditional attire for medical students, but at Massachusetts General Hospital, students and doctors at all levels of experience wear them to symbolize their commitment to lifelong learning.
