From the godfather of creative nonfiction comes a fresh and poignant collection of essays from doctors who grapple with the personal, ethical, and emotional demands of healing others as they journey from student to resident and beyond. A range of distinguished physicians and therapists are featured here, including Kay Redfield Jamison, Abigail Zugar (NYT Science Section), Peter Cramer, Robert Coles, Lauren Slater, Sandeep Jauhar, and Perri Klass, among others. Becoming a Doctor doesn't just focus on one period of training but instead portrays the broad arc of a doctor's development, from a medical student's first traumatic encounter with a cadaver and her realization that the experience's redemption will lie ahead in lives saved, to a resident's search for aesthetic beauty during her grueling year in an inner-city hospital and an older doctor's profound ruminations on what it means to really listen to a patient's story.

In iatrogenesis: Essays on Becoming a Physician, medical students share coming-of-age stories that illustrate the rigorous, rewarding, and sometimes unforgiving journey into medicine. In Greek, iatro- means doctor, and -genesis means origin: Iatrogenesis thus describes any effect, good or bad, brought forth by a physician's actions. This essay compendium looks beyond a physician's impact on patients, instead turning inward to examine the impact of medical training on student doctors. These essays written by University of Michigan medical students span from the donning of the White Coat to graduation. Along the way, each writer weaves a story, the threads of which unite in a tapestry highlighting the universality of this coming-of-age journey. These essays breathe life into each stage of medical apprenticeship, displaying the full spectrum of human emotion as medical students find ways to reinvent themselves as the physicians of tomorrow.
