I’d Like to See a Real Doctor

As someone whose brother just completed medical school in the last 12 months, I find it fascinating how immediate the transition from student to doctor occurs.  He’s 27 years old and performing ridiculous procedures every day.

I picked up this book in part because of the brilliant title, and also because I love a good medical story.  Matt McCarthy does not disappoint, as he shares the many highs and lows of his intern year of residency.  McCarthy is a great storyteller, and while I have my doubts that it is all true, I enjoyed the read.

I would love to hear a “real” doctor’s take on all this.  Oh wait… I know one.


I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review.
