Match Day by Brian Eule
Subtitled One day and One Dramatic Year In The Lives Of Three New Doctors, this bllook is a must read for everyone who wants to know what goes on that first year after the new medical student graduates and is sent to start their new life as a doctor.
They do get a choice of where to do their training. Maybe they won't get the first choice, they can list three.
This is a true story and the names have not been charged for the most part.. The reason is explained in the author's note at the end..
It is hard being a doctor and it takes time away from persoanl life. In fact, the hospital becomes your home and your life is centered around your home. Eule makes no excuse for the choices they have to make. He realizes that it costs and not many can pay that cost. But for those who stick it out it is worth it. At least that is the message I got from the book.
It gets three stars from me. I don't give out stars on everything. Three stars is a must read.
