Listen to this episode of Working with guest Alexandra Charrow:
In the Season 3 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 a second-year resident in a combined internal medicine/dermatology residency program. Her internal medicine residency takes place at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the dermatology residency is part of the Harvard Combined Dermatology Residency Training Program.
