KIRKUS REVIEW

A guide for the medical student or beginning intern with some sage advice covering the min of setting up a practice to the wider philosophical considerations of the doctor's role in the community and as a family adviser. The first section is concerned with an appraisal of the problems involved in the choice between specialization and general medical practice, emphasizing the value and expanding the horizon of the general practitioner, the necessity of internship, choice of location, and tips on the first office and the development of a practice. Part II deals with clinical problems and the development of judgment and techniques, while Part III outlines generally the doctor's role as adviser. A recommended reading list in included and the young student will doubtless find a lot here that is not in the text books which will save him from having to learn through the sometimes very hard method of experience.
