This is the book I was thinking of....


The book: Intern: A Doctor's Initiation.

As I sat there listening to NPR one afternoon, I immediately thought of you future doctors -you know who you are! I thought, "this sounds like a pretty good book!" Callers to the program who had read the book said it was a hilariously accurate portrayal of life as a medical intern.

For those of you thinking of law, I'd suggest One L: The Turbulent True Story of a First Year at Harvard Law School by Scott Turow.

Thanks, I'll definitely look into that. I'm constantly at the library requesting books from neighboring universities. If the Brewer Library doesn't have it I'll definitely find it somewhere!

btw.. I chatted with a neurosurgeon today, okay... it was more like a brief "hello, I've read about you and you're amazing".. but it was awesome! I've read stuff by him and about him and it was so cool to meet him. And he gave me his card. He's like my hero. Anyway.. I'll stop in sometime and return the sarah vowell cd's I have.

My last day is Friday. I hope to leave no later than 1:00.
