I loved this book! It is a fascinating look at the lives of a group of interns at a major medical center as they go through their internships. Three of the interns keep detailed journals over the course of a year. It is interesting for anyone to read whether you are someone interested in med school, interested in our healthcare system or just want to read a real life story that could easily be an ER television script! You will laugh, cry, be frustrated and run the gamut of human emotions.

"Effectively dramatizes the often agaonizing decisions and compromises that are made in the face of sleepless nights and inexperience . . . An important book." NOW A CLASSIC.

I really enjoyed this book. I was working in the peds department of a major medical university at the time and felt it really connected me to what the interns were going though.

I enjoyed getting a real perspective of the trials interns face in the medical field. It shows how hard, yet rewarding, the work truly is.

Good book if you enjoy medical fiction.
This is from the back cover:
"It is the testimony of these three interns - Andy, Nark, and Amy - that forms the core of this book: their real life lessons in treating sick children, confronting child abuse, and the awful human impact of the AIDS epidemic..."
