This past month I've read lots of books about medicine and being a doctor. I have read Better, Complications, Checklist Manifesto, and Do No Harm.

I am now looking for books about what medical school is like/ experiences , rather than what being a doctor is like!
What are some books about med school? Preferably somewhat current books!
Thanks so much!!!

Gentle vengeance: An account of the first year at Harvard Medical School Hardcover – 1981

by Charles LeBaron (Author)

LeBaron, who entered the Harvard Medical School at the age of thirty-four, chronicles his attempts to challenge the medical establishment and to encourage the world's leading training ground for physicians to produce more humane doctors


It is one of the first books by a non-trad and one of the first to start pushing for doctors as humans

we had a thread about this recently. Might be best to go check it out and revive it to keep it going.

In the 1980s , Perri Klass wrote a series of columns for the New York Times about beings an M3 at Harvard Med School. You can find them online if you have a subscription (which is cheap if you are a student).
