Product Overview

In this poignant collection, doctors who are writers (and vice versa) relate their real-life journeys from intern to specialist, student to teacher, reflecting on the rewards, disillusionments, and triumphs encountered along the way. Featuring a wide array of distinguished voices, including Peter Kramer, Kay Redfield Jamison, Robert Coles, Lauren Slater, Sandeep Jauhar, and Perri Klass, these original stories create a vivid mural of the medical world and provide invaluable insight for both doctors in training and longtime physicians. Becoming a Doctor portrays the broad arc of a doctor?s life, from a medical student?s uneasy first encounter with a cadaver and her realization that the experience?s redemption will lie ahead in the lives saved, to a resident?s reliance on dance during her grueling year in an inner-city hospital, and a veteran doctor?s profound ruminations on what it means to really listen to a patient?s story.
