 “Though a fictional story, the experiences leading to burnout and depression ring true. A must read for med students on one side…and for every patient on the other side. ”

“…an insightful portrayal of a medical practitioner’s daily struggles with the inevitability of death…poignant, exceptionally daunting, and valiant…”

 

“Many of the realities of modern medical practice: the rigors of medical training, medical-social injustice, end-of-life issues, the vagaries of medical insurance, experimental medicine, physician burnout and the stress of medical malpractice litigation, among others are captured by Dr. Mansheim in this probing novel.”

Stephen H. Zinner, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
“According to the American Foundation for Suicidal Prevention, approximately 400 physicians commit suicide each year, approximately a doctor a day.”

A Timely Topic

…the medical profession consistently hovers near the top of occupations with the highest risk of death by suicide…perhaps a doctor a day. A reasonable assump­tion is that underreporting of suicide as the cause of death by sympathetic colleagues certifying death may well skew these statistics; consequently, the real inci­dence of physician suicide is probably somewhat higher than the prevailing estimate.
