Doctors flocking to books, blogs, columns
Dr. Jerome Groopman (far left) and Dr. Atul Gawande are Harvard clinicians who also write for The New Yorker. Each doctor has a well-received new book. But they are only two of many doctors telling their stories or sharing their views on the pages of books, on blogs or in newspaper columns, a story in today's New York Times says.
The last six months alone have seen the publication of a half-dozen volumes of memoir and opinion by doctors at every stage of professional life, the story says, from newbie ("M.D.: A Four-Year Journey Through Medical School" by Shani Stein-Ratzker) to emeritus ("Galileo’s Gout: Science in an Age of Endarkenment" by Gerald Weissmann).
