Summary of "On becoming a physician."

Ken Swan practiced surgery for 46 years, serving with the US Army Medical Corps in both Vietnam and Desert Storm. After his army service, he joined the faculty of Rutgers Medical School, where he was director of the clinical clerkships at the time of his sudden death in 2014. Among his papers after his death, his son, Kenneth Jr. ("K. G."), found this address to incoming third-year medical students. At a symposium and gala honoring his dad in Newark on May 15, 2015, K. G. read it as a tribute to his father.
