about

In this inspired anthology, doctors relate true stories from their professional lives, capturing disillusionments and triumphs encountered along the way.

Editorial Reviews

“Medical students and medical professionals will enjoy these perspectives on their profession; they will likely encounter or have encountered many of the obstacles narrated.” — Library Journal“It seems unjust that a person should be endowed with a mind that can craft beautiful sentences and master all the information needed to graduate from medical school.
