Summary: ''Drawing on more than forty memoirs by students and doctors, Suzanne Poirier offers the lay reader an eye-opening insider's account of medical education and what's wrong with it, notably the lack of attention paid to lsquo;the emotional process of becoming a physician.' If these stories reveal the shortcomings of medical training, they also point the way to reform, for Poirier persuades us the act of storytelling, incorporated into medical curricula, can promote the emotional wholen moreess of physicians in the time to come. Her portrait of the medical student's acquisition of professional identity is subtle and complex, registering its psychological, ethical, and even physiological dimensions.''-Paul John Eakin, author,Living Autobiographically: How We Create Identity in Narrative less
