In conversation, we found that many students, as well as acquaintances and family members, have had bad experiences with the health care system. In this series, we want to try to give students in particular a space to share and process their experiences. The reports are about diagnoses and conversations with doctors or therapists. Ultimately, these reports are intended to stimulate reflection on our health care system. The editors always try to provide background information on the various topics that relate the experiences at the end of each report. Positive as well as negative experiences are welcome!
