    I mostly enjoyed the book but could not give it a five There were some things in the book that irked me on a personal and professional level I will not elaborate but it goes back to the expectations of peoples roles in medicine On the flip side it was entertaining as it brought back memories of my medical training Granted Dr Au went to a pr

    Well I learned a lot some of which I wish I hadn't It filled in some gaps So that's what a residency is So that's why medical students look slightly embarrassed to be in the room with me and the doctor and that's why one fell asleep while I was giving my history So that's why that injection was a 15 minute nightmare of the resident scraping the needle along my bone searching for my joint it was July and the ink probably wasn't

With those of a physician two all consuming jobs in which the lives of others are very literally in her hands Au's stories range from hilarious to heartbreaking and hit every note in between proving than anything that the creation of a new doctor and a new parent is far messier far uncertain and far gratifying than one could ever expect.

summary This Wont Hurt a Bit

This Wont Hurt a Bit

Michelle Au started medical school armed only with a surfeit of idealism a handful of old ER episodes for reference and some vague notion about helping people This Won't Hurt a Bit is the story of how she grew up and became a real doctor It's a no holds barred account of what a modern medical education feels like from the grim to the rid. I ve been reading Michelle Au s blog for the past several years before she went into Anesthesia before she had her first child I remember first coming across her blog through her scutmonkey comics I imagine this is the way most medical students start reading her blog Her irreverent commentary about the absurdities of medical school clerkships made me laugh out in uiet libraries where I was supposed to be memorizing pharmacology or something When she announced on her blog that she had written a book I knew I would eventually read it though I didn t imagine myself running out to buy it I did finally pick it up yesterday Essentially the book outlines her journey through medicine Long time readers of her blog will find many of the stories in her book very familiar To be honest I was a little disappointed by the lack of new stories It s written in a somewhat choppy style some parts vignettes of her clinical experience others dialogue of something funny or silly It s very much in the style of her blog Though some of the new stories feel a bit like filler others are engaging Though she s probably most known for her acerbic sense of humor she s also surprisingly good with sentiment Stories that particularly stand out are her experiences during 911 and her summation of the journey of a tentative medical student to a confident attendingA good book though I wouldn t call it a modern day House of God

Iculous from the heartwarming to the obscene Unlike most medical memoirs however this one details the author's struggles to maintain a life outside of the hospital in the small amount of free time she had to live it And after she and her husband have a baby early in both their medical residencies Au explores the demands of being a parent. This book has been on my want to read list for ages I m happy I could finally get my hands on it it s an amazing book It is very realistic about medical training but it s not realistic in a gallows humor kind of way like so many books tend to do Dr Au just shows us what it s like the good and the bad while being very respectful towards patients This book addresses the central uestion of everyone who is in the process of becoming a doctor how do I ever get to the point of not being afraid any how do I grow to be a doctor in mindset A perfect read for everyone who is about to start residency
