Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Singular Intimacies is the story of becoming a doctor by immersion at New York's Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in the country. When Danielle Ofri first enters the doors as a medical student, she is immediately plunged into the teeming world of urban medicine. It is here that Dr. Ofri develops a profound instinct for healing and, above all, learns to navigate the tangled vulnerabilities of doctor and patient.

Synopsis:

When Danielle Ofri enters the doors of New Yorkas legendary Bellevue Hospital as a tentative medical student, she is plunged into the teeming world of urban medicine: mysterious illnesses, patients speaking any one of a dozen languages, overworked interns devising audacious strategies to cope with the intensity of a big-city hospital. In a facility where poverty and social strife are as much a part of the pathology as any microbe, it is the medical students and interns who are thrust into the searing intimacy that is the doctor-patient relationship. With each chapter, Ofri introduces us to a new medical crisis and a human being with an intricate and compelling history.

Synopsis:

The minute Danielle Ofri entered the doors of Bellevue Hospital, the tentative medical student was plunged into the overcrowded world of urban medicine. Singular Intimacies lays bare the harrowing years of medical school and internship, offering the insiders view of becoming a doctor.
