Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud". This film highlights intellectual and other inadequacies high-achieving students commonly feel at some point in their academic careers. These feelings are especially common among graduate- and professional-school students.

Uncertain Times: We Are Here For You
