Summary
"Dr. Peters, the patient has stopped breathing!" The nurse's voice on the phone is desperate, but young Dr. Peters, in his first weeks of internship, is bone-tired and a little afraid. He's forgotten when he last slept. Yet he knows that in the coming hours he will have to make life or death decisions, assist contemptuous surgeons, deal with nurses who may know more than he does, and pretend at all times to be what he has not yet become, a fully qualified doctor
Summary
A young man confronts the problems and challenges of learning to be a doctor during the first year of his internship in Hawaii, in a compelling, inside look at the world of American medicine
