The Centre is pleased to offer ‘in-Training: Stories from tomorrow’s physicians‘ edited by Ajay Major and Aleena Paul (Pager Publications, 2016) for review. We have two review copies available, specifically for a medical student and an academic in the area of medical humanities or medical education.
in-Training: Stories from Tomorrow’s Physicians is a collection of 102 manuscripts published on in-Training, the online magazine for medical students, since its inception in July 2012. All of the manuscripts were written and edited by medical students, and were chosen by the editors for their humanistic merit in authentically presenting the challenges of being a physician-in-training.
The publication was supported by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting humanism in medicine and medical education, who also established an Advisory Group that provided review and guidance.
The book is designed as a resource guide for medical students and educators interested in the medical humanities. The compendium presents first-person accounts of experiences in dissection lab, in the classroom, and on the wards, reflecting on the patient-physician relationship, burnout, systemic barriers to care, and discovering passion for the healing arts.
If you would like to review ‘in-Training’ (no more than 1,000 words in length), then please consult our reviewer’s guidelines and email our reviews editor with a short explanation of why you are well placed to review the book.
