About this item

A behind-the-scenes look at the real lives of surgical residents, from the author of The Medical Science of House, M.D.

Do surgeons talk about their sex lives while cutting a heart open? How do surgeons respond to death? How do they react when asked to save the life of an abuser, criminal, or addict?

Since its debut, the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy has asked such questions. With an emphasis on the personal lives of the surgical interns, residents, and attending physicians, the show has generated interest in how these professionals survive this rigorous educational program. How much of its drama is entertainment, and how much is accurate? Here, a medical journalist provides answers. He examines a group of new surgical residents in the Pacific Northwest as they tackle long hours, fascinating procedures, and emotional ups and downs that comprise the life of a student of surgery.

A medical journalist compares real life to the television show Grey's Anatomy as he follows the lives of an actual group of new surgical residents at a hospital in the Pacific Northwest. Original.
