I've read the book 3 times
I read the book first as a 1st year medical student, then as a 2nd year Ob/Gyn resident and lastly as a junior attending. Each time I read it, it means more than the last. It's frightening and timeless. Physicians are human!!!! We screw up all the time!!!! But most of us are trying to do our best in a less than perfect environment, with less than perfect patients and with us being less than perfect beings. I can't find the movie, where can I get a copy.
Where can someone get acop of this?
A MUST FOR EVERY MEDICAL STUDENT/RESIDENT

Growing up, we all view the life of a doctor as glorious, and well balanced. In some societies, doctors possess an almost super-human status. As a child, I believed that doctors had the answers to any medical question, and could tackle any medical problem. Now that I'm a doctor, I wished I read this book earlier. Because everything we once knew about being a doctor was WRONG! Rectal exams, uncontrolled bladders, smells that make you lose your lunch, and a life kills your social life, that is what medicine also possess, that is the side they dont want you to see, that is the side, the reality that comes across this movie. All though made over 20 years ago, the core of medicine has not changed. The movie is an amazing portrayal of what life is about behind those white doors.
