This insightful and balanced chronicle of the author's education at Yale Medical School provides a personal, yet universal, portrait of the unique passage from student to healer. At a time when the medical profession is subject to exceptional scrutiny, Dr. Reilly's account reminds all of the ideals and skills implicit in the title Doctor. It successfully represents the highest aspirations that motivate those in the medical professions, while sensitively--even poignantly--acknowledging the limitations of caregivers and medical technology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Philip Reilly's story is engagingly told, filled with impressions, and rich with similes and analogies. One can almost see, hear, smell, and feel the patients he describes. Often they resemble people we have known well--not stereotypes, but individuals. . . . Although this story is personally unique, it touches upon the stories of all medical students."-Margery W. Shaw. M.D., J.D., University of Texas
." . . compelling and thought-provoking reading--not just for medical practitioners and those who aspire to the health care professions, but for lay readers as well."-Yale Alumni Review
." . . Reilly illuminates both the potential for becoming a humane physician, and for earning, as one of the author's teachers expressed it, a front row seat on life.'"-Adam Burrows, Resolve
." . . an honest, revealing, and sensitive account of medical school training that should prove valuable to a wide audience interested in medical education. For those who have attended medical school, Reilly's stories will spark important memories. For those who have not, this book will bring them much closer to the experience."-Richard J. Pels, M.D., New England Journal of Medicine
