Haunted Doctors: Clinician Trauma, Emotion, and the Weird 

The idea of being “haunted” appears often in accounts of the experience of health-care professionals and trainees suffering from unresolved sorrow or regret about past clinical events, especially the deaths of patients. This eerie metaphor captures two important, and arguably underemphasized, components of clinical practice: emotion and uncertainty. I’ll suggest that doctors’ work is, in several senses, weird, and that medicine might benefit from paying closer attention to the etiologies and manifestations of its ghosts.
