This was a good read! The author, now an internist in Seattle, writes of her three years of residency in Seattle hospitals. She does a good job of describing the sleepless nights, the overwhelming responsibility and the tough decisions that go along with those three years before finally emerging as a licensed doctor. I particularly enjoyed her exploration of the emotional and psychological aspects of dealing with very sick people and their concerned, and sometimes distraught, families.
