Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The decision to work in medicine is a version of the email you get in early October asking you to choose your menu options for the work Christmas party. You must be psychologically fit for the job, able to make decisions under a terrifying amount of pressure, and deal with death on a daily basis. #2 I was a junior doctor in London in 1998. I had spent a quarter of my life at medical school, and it hadn’t remotely prepared me for the Jekyll and Hyde existence of a house officer. During the day, I was a glorified PA. #3 The night shifts made Dante look like Disney. They were a nightmare that made me regret ever thinking my education was being underutilized. I was a doctor now, and I loved it. #4 I have a new stethoscope, a new shirt, and a new email address: atom. [email protected] net. It’s good to know that no matter what happens today, I could still accuse myself of being the most incompetent person in the hospital.
