Man, I devoured this book Pediatric first year, learning and barely living in a hospital Very educational, felt like I was in the trenches, living the harrowed, sleepless, bothered, and tense life of a first year Scut university.attendings questioning away Orders written and patients assessed all night long All of these sorts of books have influenced me greatly, personally and professionally. Well, I finally finished reading this It took some time, as it is a thick book and I ve been pretty busy with school, but I got through it I thought it was an interesting book and there was a lot I liked about it From a medical standpoint it was fascinating to read about conditions I had never heard of before I like how the author explained medical terms in bold many of them I was already familiar with and the format made it easy for me to skip the explanation and pick the story back up I Well, I finally finished reading this It took some time, as it is a thick book and I ve been pretty busy with school, but I got through it I thought it was an interesting book and there was a lot I liked about it From a medical standpoint it was fascinating to read about conditions I had never heard of before I like how the author explained medical terms in bold many of them I was already familiar with and the format made it easy for me to skip the explanation and pick the story back up I liked reading about the different environments in which the interns worked, their feelings on dealing with sick and dying patients, and the effect their internship had on their personal relationships I loved the sections written by Mark as he made me laugh I think it is crucial for a doctor to maintain a sense of humor, how else could they deal with all the tragedy that sometimes surrounds them There were a few things I wasn t crazy about, however I think it would have been interesting to read about interns in other departments, not just pediatrics If it covered a broader spectrum, each intern in a different department for example, one could see that the stress and hardship of interning is not found only pedatrics Maybe if one intern had been in the ER and another in geriatrics, or in regular ICU, I would have enjoyed the bookFinally, Amy drove me crazy There were times I was temped to skip over her sections entirely She complained constantly, always thinking she was being treated unfairly, always whining about not being able to spend time with her baby, always griping I kept thinking, this woman should not be a doctor When she complained that her co workers were upset at her for trying to rush out the door every day, I felt sympathy towards them, not her I thought she was selfish, self centered, and bitchy Definitely not a doctor I d want I wasn t surprised at all to read how she ended up, and think that was probably for the best Reading about the medical world is much different than the idea most people have about it This book is such a raw and honest account of what it s like to be an intern Wanting to enter the medical field myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the accounts in this book For anyone who is considering or just interested in medicine. Again, reading this book makes me really happy not to be doing my internship or residency in the US No way could I be on call every 3rd night and then function normally I mean really, you expect your doctor to be smart, edaucated and to make the right decisions it s just that they haven t slept for 36 hours.As far as I understand the 3 young doctors in this book finished their internships in the late 80 s so I hope their experience is not the same as that of interns today Fascinating I can t imagine being that consistently sleep deprived and having to make as many life or death decisions as these doctors do &Read E-pub ⇱ The Intern Blues: The Timeless Classic About the Making of a Doctor ✓ While supervising a small group of interns at a major New York medical center, Dr Robert Marion

death responsibility thrust upon you while you were unsure of your ability to handle it, were frequentl awakened in the middle of the night to do mindless scut work, and saw death, pain and grief on a daily basis The Intern Blues gives answers to that question from three young doctors doing a pediatric internship in big New York hospitals Their answers are remarkably similar it warps, embitters, stresses and changes Each intern dreaded and then hated the year, complaining of the long hours, hard work and lack of sleep Each learned something about how to take care of patients under difficult circumstances, and each gained a measure of self confidence, knowledge, and clinical judgment.Dr Marion calls internship arguably the most vital transformation in all of medicine, turning green medical students into battle hardened residents In a sense, that s true Skills are learned, confidence and the ability to make decisions independently are built, insecurities overcome Along with that, cynicism and bitterness become constants of the young doctor s personality Like most interns, these interns saw way too much death, and way too much suffering They saw children with dreadful diseases that would claim their lives after a few short years of terrible, but useless, suffering They saw children born with AIDS, with parents who abandoned them, children molested, beaten, burned by their parents The transformation from clueless student to capable doctor was described by one of the interns turning fresh, well mannered and even tempered with warmth in our hearts and great expectations into tattered, unshaven, smelly, cynical, snarling survivors of a long and somewhat meaningless struggle with ourselves and the rest of the world Dr Marion calls his own internship the hardest and most devasting year of his life, and says that some of its pain, anger, exhaustion and anguish is still with him The audiotaped diaries of the three interns that make up this book bear him out, each telling the same tale in general, although the specific, painful details vary Dr Marion says that everyone who lives through internship is forever changed by the experience, they learn about medicine and the human body, and truly become a physician Dr Marion says that in the process, through the wearing down of the intern s spirit, that person also loses something he or she has carried, some innocence, some humanness, some fundmental respect, and asks at the end Is it all worth it I suspect he thinks maybe it isn t that the price is too high And his description of the process, coupled with the stories of these three doctors who went through that ordeal, raises some difficult questions What struck me was that maybe some people aren t cut out to be doctors, and others are, and that this year brings that reality out.Two of these doctors endured and hated the hard work, but decided that they d learned to take care of patients, and this was something they could do and wanted to do The other seemed not only to hate the work, but to hate his patients He says one patient nauseated him While not praise worthy, that s not all that an unusual of a response But the way this intern talks about this patient is, calling his child patient a disgusting, horrible bag of piss poor protoplasm While it s tempting to think that this intern to developed a morbid sense of humor to cope with the horror and stress of internship, I think I wouldn t like to have this guy as my doctor Maybe only those who survive internship with a basic sense of decency left intact should be licensed as physicians In a sense, internship tests not only the intellect, but the heart We should all be lucky enough to be treated only by those doctors who survive both tests an extremely intimate and fascinating look at three interns lives you watch them go through ups and downs as they learn to view themselves as doctors, seeing all the cases they see along the way the aspect i enjoyed, however,
