The Real Doctor Will See You Shortly: A Physician's First Year by Matt McCarthy

"It started with a banana peel."

On Matt's first day in a hospital in medical school, his surgical resident made him suture a banana peel. It took him most of a week to figure out how to do it properly. I'm not sure if this made him a better doctor. I think the resident was just being a jerk.

Suturing a banana sounds interesting.

Do they really do that for practice?

Thanks for sharing. I hope you are enjoying the book.

Sometimes I enjoy memoirs other times I get really irritated by them because I wonder what makes them think they are so special they deserve a memoir. Ha! Where does this book fall?
