What I Learned in Medical School: Personal Stories of Young Doctors - Paperback

ISBN: 0520246810

[SR: 721979], Paperback, [EAN: 9780520246812], University of California Press, University of California Press, Book, [PU: University of California Press], University of California Press, Like many an exclusive club, the medical profession subjects its prospective members to rigorous indoctrination: medical students are overloaded with work, deprived of sleep and normal human contact, drilled and tested and scheduled down to the last minute. Difficult as the regimen may be, for those who don't fit the traditional mold—white, male, middle-to-upper class, and heterosexual—medical school can be that much more harrowing. This riveting book tells the tales of a new generation of medical students—students whose varied backgrounds are far from traditional. Their stories will forever alter the way we see tomorrow's doctors.In these pages, a black teenage mother overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds, an observant Muslim dons the hijab during training, an alcoholic hides her addiction. We hear the stories of an Asian refugee, a Mexican immigrant, a closeted Christian, an oversized woman—these once unlikely students are among those who describe their medical school experiences with uncommon candor, giving a close-up look at the inflexible curriculum, the pervasive competitive culture, and the daunting obstacles that come with being "different" in medical school. Their tales of courage are by turns poignant, amusing, eye-opening—and altogether , 3048891, Memoirs, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2423, Medical, 2419, Professionals & Academics, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 227562, Health Care Delivery, 227560, Administration & Medicine Economics, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 227695, Forensic Medicine, 227692, Pathology, 227203, Internal Medicine, 265542, Medicine, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 3559289011, Education & Training, 227670, Reference, 265542, Medicine, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11302, Ethnic Studies, 11298, Specific Demographics, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11288, Sociology, 16244271, Abuse, 271633011, Class, 297480, Death, 11291, Marriage & Family, 16311191, Medicine, 10582, Race Relations, 11293, Rural, 11294, Social Theory, 11296, Urban, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: UNIV OF CALIFORNIA PR], "A heartfelt, sincere, and broad-ranging collection of voices from the depths of struggle in medical education. You will find here doubts, anger, surprise, sometimes naivete--and you will also find hope."--Atul Gawande, M.D., author of "Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science"This vibrant collection celebrates the diversity of medical trainees' experiences and brings to the forefront voices too often marginalized in medicine. Testament to the changing face of the profession, this volume reminds both healers and patients that medicine's strengths arise from the rich variety of its practitioners."--Sayantani DasGupta, MD, MPH, author of "Her Own Medicine: A Woman's Journey from Student to Doctor "The book has tremendous educational value and could be used as a catalyst for change."--Maureen S. O'Leary, MBA, RN, Executive Director of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association"In these beautifully written and deeply honest essays, medical students share a commitment to humanity that heals the wounds of isolation and reveals the power of diversity in the service of life. "What I Learned in Medical School "is a special book. Read it. It will make you proud to know your doctor."--Rachel Naomi Remen, author of"Kitchen Table Wisdom "An intriguing collection of strong and varied voices from the next generation of doctors. The narratives in this book challenge our assumptions about medical education and what makes a good physician, while reminding us, by their power, variety, and sincerity, of the many different roads that can be followed into medicine. The reader comes away with an appreciation for the richness and complexity that broadening the traditional profile of medicine anddoctors brings to the profession and its practices."--Perri Klass, MD, author of "A Not Entirely Benign Procedure: Four Years as a Medical Student "This wonderful, thoughtful, and sometimes bitterly humorous collection of personal stories from medical students details wha 228 pages - 20 b/w photographs - 9 x 6 in Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
