    Hey, does anyone have any suggestions for some good medical reads that may be helpful for interviews (i.e. good books on medical ethics, etc.). I would appreciate any advice.

    Check out the Journal of Bioethics at www.bioethics.net. They have a lot of good articles and they are not hard to understand.

    CrazyTerp, I took a look at the site that you mentioned in your post. It looked like an excellent site for ethics, thanks for the suggestion.

    Others, any further info on pre-interview reads would be appreciated.

    Recently there was a thread on books that are medically related. I'd dig it up for you but I'm on my way out the door. Try doing a search maybe. Good luck!

    "The Lost Art of Healing" by Bernard Lown MD

    Great book by a well known Harvard Physician/Professor. Goes into medical ethics from his perspective.....a really great book about what medicine is truely about.
