Illuminates human fragility in tales both lyrical and soul-wrenching. Danielle Ofri, New York Times Book Review

In this artful, unfailingly human, and understandable (Boston Globe) account inspired by his own experiences becoming a doctor, Terrence Holt puts readers on the front lines of the harrowing crucible of a medical residency. A medical classic in the making, hailed by critics as capturing the feelings of a young doctors three-year hospital residency . . . better than anything else I have ever read (Susan Okie, Washington Post), Holt brings a writers touch and a doctors eye to nine unforgettable stories where the intricacies of modern medicine confront the mysteries of the human spirit. Internal Medicine captures the stark moments of success and failure, pride and shame, courage and cowardice, self-reflection and obtuse blindness that mark the years of clinical training (Jerome Groopman, New York Review of Books), portraying not only a doctors struggle with sickness and suffering but also the fears and frailties each of usdoctor and patientbring to the bedside.
