The blurb is perfect in describing this read since the book is basically a longer version of it. As a reader you spend the year following Matt an intern on his rotations through different areas of the hospital ascertaining what area of medicine he wants to practice. During this intense time Matt slowly realizes he not only wishes to heal his patients physically but also gain a caring bedside manner finding it more complex than he fathomed. It’s noteworthy to this reader that one bona fide doctor out in the world who cares about their bedside manner. There is no real focus on actual medical procedures but you do get an idea about certain ones such as resuscitation, I.V., and ports.
The plot has a slow flow to it and at points jumps around.
