A must-read for medical students .. testing posts from Amazon.
Heirs of General Practice
Author: John McPhee; $8.80 (Usually ships within 24 hours)
First rate McPhee
A former student sent me this book after her first year in medical studies and said "finally someone who tells it like it is". Definitely NOT about urban Medibusiness or the world of HMOS and doctors too busy to doctor, instead McPhee focuses on the lives and work of young doctors in rural Maine, bringing us their story and that of their patients with compassion and without either the cloying sentimentality or the muck-raking zeal that sometimes clogs this topic. A quick read & well worth it.
