June 2011 Speaker: Dr. Megan Maxwell
Dr. Megan Maxwell just completed her first year of medical residency and has lived to tell about it. This twenty-seven year old intern (the age of most of the heroines in our WIPs) faces 30-hour calls every four days; 80+ hour work weeks, overworked attendings, know-it-all second years…all while navigating a new hospital system with every 4 week rotation change. She’s learned to deal with drug seekers, emergency room trauma, the critically ill, the terminally ill, and a whole lot of Code Blues and death.
Peek beneath the white coat on Saturday, June 11th, for an extensive look at the heart of today’s young doctors. Hear the stories of tragedy and triumph that always sparks our creativity.
Dr. Megan Maxwell is an anesthesiology resident at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, TX. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Abilene Christian University in 2006. Dr. Maxwell finished medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and graduated with her medical doctorate in 2010.
