Becoming a Doctor: A Journey of Initiation in Medical School Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dr. Konner takes readers through his third year at medical school, where he wonders why teachers instill in their students a sense of power, but no sense of concern. Controversial, insightful, well-written, and deeply moving.

Synopsis:

"A valuable contribution to the growing literature of medical culture."—Gerald Weissman, New York Univ. Medical Center.
