Where's the guilt, not just over how you think you mishandled a patient's care, but also over how you've not lived up to what others and what yourself expected of you and how you've neglected all friends and family? What about the oppressive sense of responsibility which you are initially overwhelmed with, frequently take for granted, sometimes make light of, often resent, and occasionally try to dodge?
What about inevitable dehumanization that is not so much created by a villanous, uncaring system but is really a part of the job description? What about your transferences and countertransferences towards patients, your natural defense systems and how they sabotage your clinical judgement, making you even more guilty and defensive, your feeling of inadequacy that is only outweighed by your desire to be somehow normal again and part of the rest of humanity?
These are things my colleagues and I deal with on a daily basis. This so-called "classic" doesn't address any of them except in the most perfunctory manner possible.
What it does do is rage against the residency system of his time. There have been immense changes since then; some may say the pendulum has even swung too much the other way. I cannot find much beyond that. The book is of historical interest in that regard, but given the depth of the emotional toil that is internship, I expected a lot, lot more out of the "classic novel".In the Unlikely Event.
We appreciate your feedback. Basch and his irreverant confident, known only as the Fat Man, will learn not only how to be fine doctors but, eventually, good human beings.

The House of God: Andy Weir. A phenomenon ever since it was published, The House of God was the first unvarnished, unglorified, and uncensored portrait of what training to become a doctor is truly like, in all its terror, exhaustion and black comedy.
