Plenty of plot points kept me reading: finding out how the kid docs will react to the pressure, the fate of the patients who come into the hospital, and even the fate of one of their own." - Jennifer Donovan, 5 Minutes for BooksDon't miss this chance to slip behind the scenes into a world that few people ever experience first-hand, the life of a physician in training.
