The making of a doctor in a series of essays-written by future physicians uniquely qualified to offer a startling point of view. Written by third year students just as they begin to take on clinical responsibilities, these essays focus on the odd transition that happens when a student deals with real people in real time and real crises. Moving and candid: they show us a side of the profession that few of us would ever otherwise see or even imagine, and show, often painfully, how a medical student grows up, right at the bedside.
