Summary
"Out of the crucible of medical training, award-winning writer Terrence Holt shapes this ... account of residency, the years-long ordeal in which doctors are made. 'Amid all the mess and squalor of the hospital, with its blind random unraveling of lives,' [this book] finds the compassion from which doctors discover the strength to care"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
The author of In the Valley of the Kings presents nine essays from a doctor's residency -- from a life-and-death effort to keep an oxygen mask on a claustrophobic patient to a nightmarish struggle to convince a man he has cancer to the lounge of a snowbound hospital where doctors swap yarns through the night
