Description

The Making of a Doctor is a novel about a young physician, Dr. Luke James. The story chronicles his year as a medical intern, the most grueling year of any physician's professional training. The book is a prequel to the novel he published in 2017 entitled A Doctor a Day. The first book tells of Dr. James's experience in medical practice, as he suffers unending emotional pressure from caring for dying patients year after year.

The current novel weaves Luke's life experiences with his medical training, where he evolves from a new medical school graduate to a seasoned physician during an unforgettable year. Not only does he suffer through the physical exhaustion of his internship, but multiple external factors have an impact that makes the burden even heavier.

He learns first-hand how to blend art and science into the practice of medicine, and to learn empathy for his patients without being drowned in a whirlpool of emotion. At the other extreme he needs to learn that cold objectivity is not a solution because it detracts from his ability to understand each patient as an individual.

This book is the second in a planned series called Everydoctor.
