Playing Doctor – Part One: Medical School by John Lawrence


This book was interesting to read but also used a lot of medical terminology that made me have to concentrate an awful lot!
Set in the US, it’s a non fiction book that follows a student going through medical school and anecdotes that make it seem more personal and pulls the reader in
This book is well written if slightly confusing and it really highlights some of the issues and challenges that medical students face. I’m sure many people, not just med students, would resonate with the feeling that sometimes you feel out of your depth, not quite sure what to do and if you still want to do the job you are in
I enjoyed learning about the different specialties and how students learn as well as how the people around you can really impact on your experience. I will admit that some of the descriptions were quite graphic and not what I expected 
I would recommend this book to those who are interested in medicine and who want to see behind the scenes in a hospital
