Description of White Coat PDF

White Coat PDF is Dr. Ellen Lerner Rothman’s vivid account of her four years at Harvard Medical School. Describing the grueling hours and emotional hurdles she underwent to earn the degree of M.D., Dr. Rothman tells the story of one woman’s transformation from a terrified first-year medical studen into a confident, competent doctor.

Touching on the most relevant issues in medicine today–such as HMOs, aIDS, and assisted suicide–Dr. Rothman recounts her despair and exhilaration as a medical student, from the stress of exams to th hard-won rewards that came from treating patients.

The anecdotes in White Coat are funny, heartbreaking, and at times horrifying. Each chapter taes us deeper into Dr. Rothman’s medical school experience, illuminating her struggle to walk the line between too much and not enough intimacy with her patients. For readers of Perri Klass and Richard Selzer, Dr. Rothman looks candidly at medicine and presents an unvarnished perspective on a subject that matters to us all. White Coat opens the infamously closed door between patient and doctor in a book that will change the way we look at our medical establishment.

In White Coat, Ellen Rothman offers a vivid account of her four years at one of the best medical schools in the country, and opens the infamously closed door between patient and doctor. Touching on today’s most important medical issues — such as HMOs, AIDS, and assisted suicide — the author navigates her way through despair, exhilaration, and a lot of exhaustion in Harvard’s classrooms and Boston’s hospitals to earn the indisputable title to which we entrust our lives.

With a thoughtful, candid voice, Rothman writes about a wide range of experiences — from a dream about holding the hand of a cadaver she had dissected to the acute embarrassment she felt when asking patients about their sexual histories. She shares her horror at treating a patient with a flesh-eating skin infection, the anxiety of being “pimped” by doctors for information (when doctors quiz students on anatomy and medicine), as well as the ultimate reward of making the transformation and of earning a doctor’s white coat.

For readers of Perri Klass, Richard Selzer, and the millions of fans of ERWhite Coat is a fascinating account of one woman’s journey through school and into the high-stakes drama of the medical world.

This book (published 1999) chronicles the journey of a Harvard Medical School student. It is comprehensive,
detailing Dr. Rothman’s rotations through various medical topic areas (surgery, obstetrics etc.)The book is certainly not philosophic. It does not talk about the concerted effort it takes to be admitted
to Harvard Medical School. What class you have to belong to. What privilege it implies.I called this book an invaluable guide because if you are attending medical school in the US, you need to read
this book.The most controversial aspect of this book is probably the unflinching description of abortion procedures.
I personally believe in abortion, because due to socio-economic reasons and class power structure, the rich
will always be able to access abortion for themselves and their children. Eventually I hope when society
gives women rights, abortion will be phased out, but not now. So another 200 years.

In conclusion, if you were hoping for a meditation on for-profit healthcare this is not it. however, if you
are looking for an intelligent and well-written read on the medical school experience, you will find
what you are looking for.

As an aspiring doctor, I was hoping to get the same insight out of “White Coat” that a future lawyer would gleam from Scott Turow’s “One L.” However, the difference between the two is that Turow has a genuine gift for writing, while Rothman’s account of her medical school is a very dry “just-the-facts-ma’am” style. It was a chore to finish the book, and I still have no idea what makes Rothman’s experience at Harvard any different than John Doe’s medical training at the University of Maine.
There were several problems with this book. Like the other reviewers noted, Rothman’s characterization of people by their appearance was distracting, bordering on offensive. It’s as if she mistakes physical description for insight. Descriptions of patients’ ailments and suffering that should have drawn the reader in are presented in as cold and impersonal a manner as a medical chart. Who knows, maybe that’s where Rothman drew her memories of the encounters. Finally, there is the author herself. In an attempt to personalize the book, Rothman details her romance with one of her fellow classmates. Again, the details are presented in a vague and sketchy. After three or four luxury vacations, boom, they’re engaged. The reader never gets a sense of what Carlos is like, or the challenges of nurturing and maintaining a relationship under demanding circumstances. As a result, Rothman’s account of her relationship and subsequent engagement rings false, even though this is supposedly a nonfiction book.
I have friends in medical school, and their terse emails and brief, infrequent phone conversations give me more insight into the life of a medical student than this book did. Rothman doesn’t give the reader a true sense of what a medical student’s life is like. There are only biased descriptions of the patients she encountered in the different specialty rotations broken up by occasional updates of her uninteresting romance with one of her classmates.

It starts good with feelings, expectations, experiences but towards the end it becomes more like ER show, personal feelings seems to disappear. I was more interested reading about actual thrill that was felt rather than how the patients felt, but still gave me an understanding of being in medical school and difficult life it brings.
I liked the way she described the obgyn experience but others was like textbook explaining the problems. First years experiences was very short, the process and procedures was not clear, I still do not get from the book when you start rotations, when you become resident, what is expected from you, what happenes if you do not perform.

Being a premed and going through the grueling process of courses, MCAT and GPA, it’s nice to read someones first hand account of medical school. It’s a great book and I look forward to my own experiences!

An interesting view of becoming a doctor from someone on the front lines.
A very in-depth account from first-hand knowledge.

I read Ellen Rothmans’s book years ago and enjoyed it thoroughly and it left a lasting impression. For me it was a page turner! My thoughts were She is such a good doctor and writer too! I look forward to her other books’..\ I am neither a doctor or a medical student, but I do read many medical memois and for me this was a standout I came back today to see if she had indeed wrote about her ongoing experiences .and was disappointed not to find any. Furthermore, I was shocked to read so many negative reviews. I found her accounts to be sensitive and felt that I walked right beside her during her first challenging year.
I am writing this with two hopes. One that others may be encouraged to ignor the negative reviews and give it a try. Land secondly that Ellen Roghman see that to one reader she was unforgetable.
