This book was fascinating to me as my daughter is currently a third year resident at New York Hospital, where Jauhar did his internship. I knew how grindingly difficult it was; how interns bear the brunt of hospital stress that rolls downhill, from attendings to nurses to patients; how exhaustion leads to depression leads to burnout. Reading Jauhar's vivid descriptions of all this, including specific details of place and people and conversations, was riveting. It's a brutal initiation, and we are lucky the process, for the most part, results in doctors who can still care about us.

About This Item

Intern is Sandeep Jauhar's story of his days and nights in residency at a busy hospital in New York City, a trial that led him to question our every assumption about medical care today. Residency—and especially the first year, called internship—is legendary for its brutality. Working eighty hours or more per week, most new doctors spend their first year asking themselves why they wanted to be doctors in the first place.

Jauhar's internship was even more harrowing than most: he switched from physics to medicine in order to follow a more humane calling—only to find that medicine put patients' concerns last. He struggled to find a place among squadrons of cocky residents and doctors. He challenged the practices of the internship in The New York Times, attracting the suspicions of the medical bureaucracy. Then, suddenly stricken, he became a patient himself—and came to see that today's high-tech, high-pressure medicine can be a humane science after all.

Now a thriving cardiologist, Jauhar has all the qualities you'd want in your own doctor: expertise, insight, a feel for the human factor, a sense of humor, and a keen awareness of the worries that we all have in common. His beautifully written memoir explains the inner workings of modern medicine with rare candor and insight.

Eh. This memoir of a young doctor is more a confession of Jauhar's ambivalence about the profession of medicine than an in-depth look at the process of becoming a doctor. It's useful, I guess, to know that doctors are as likely to be unhappily punching the clock as any other worker, but Jauhar's writing isn't much sharper than his doctoring.

I found this book to be very inspiring. I've worked at a teaching hopsital before but I've never known the hardships that interns must endure. This book has really opened my eyes to what it means to be an intern. The language that Jauhar uses in smooth and colorful. Even if a reader has no prior knowledge of the medical field, it's easy to understand the procedures that are being described.

A great glimpse at the process of becoming a doctor. The pacing and narration is phenomenal and Dr. Sandeep does a great job of conveying the intensity of everyday life as a hospital resident.

Excellent for those interested in what medical school is like or for those making the plunge into the medical profession.
