More about the film:

History of Present Illness portrays the initial, daunting, years of medical school from a medical student’s perspective. The film is inspired by Phil’s own conversations with classmates and meetings with advisors. He wanted more than anything to capture the way stress and anxiety compound the profound sensation of isolation that medical students feel on a daily basis. Medical school advisors, dealing with their own personal troubles, are often powerless to help students confront our unique issues. At the end of the day, medical students are expected to somehow push through and continue studying, because as they are often told, “it only gets harder.”
