"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.

A little hard for me to get into but once I did, I kept reading. There is an internal struggle going on with this doc that plays out in the pages of the book. Mostly problems you would expect in being a sleep-deprived, always learning doctor.

Two books I would recommend on this subject (both NON fiction) are "The making of a surgeon" by Dr William Nolan and "Five Patients" by Michael Crichton. Both were doctors and these books reflect their experiences.

Not nearly as good as Alan Nourse's "Intern: By Dr. X". Very little medical action, more like a diatribe against the AMA and its policies.
