The Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, is one of only four predominantly Black medical schools in the United States. Among its illustrious alumni are surgeons general of the United States, medical school presidents, and numerous other highly regarded medical professionals. This book tells the engrossing history of this venerable institution. The school was founded just after the civil rights era, when major barriers prevented minorities from receiving adequate health care and Black students were underrepresented in predominantly White medical schools. The Morehouse School of Medicine was conceived to address both problems—it was a minority-serving institution educating doctors who would practice in underserved communities. The school's history involves political maneuvering, skilled leadership, dedication to training African American physicians, and a mission of primary care in disadvantaged communities. Highlighting such influential leaders as former Health and Human Services Secretary Louis W. Sullivan, The Morehouse Mystique situates the school in the context of the history of medical education for Blacks and race relations throughout the country. The book features excerpts from personal interviews with prominent African American doctors as well as with former presidents Jimmy Carter and George H. W. Bush, who reveal how local, state, and national politics shaped the development of Black medical schools in the United States. The story of the Morehouse School of Medicine reflects the turbulent time in which it was founded and the lofty goals and accomplishments of a diverse group of African American leaders. Their tireless efforts in creating this eminent Black institution changed the landscape of medical education and the racial and ethnic makeup of physicians and health care professions.

Whether from the perspective of a patient, a family member, or a medical professional, we all have a significant stake in the process of medical education. While numerous memoirs recount physicians' grueling experiences during residency, few focus on the even more formative portion of medical training: the third year of medical schoolthe clinical year. Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor is the disarmingly honest, yet endearing and sometimes funny account of a medical student's humbling initiation into the world of patient care.Written during his third year of medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, James Feinstein's Short White Coat uses a series of engaging narrative essays to illustrate the universal life lessons that his very first patients teach him. He examines some of the most common issues and feelings that medical students encounter while learning how to meet, talk with, touch, and care for their patients. Along the way, he learns from his own mistakes before discovering the answer to the question that plagues every medical student: "Do I have what it takes to become a doctor?"

This candid and intimate memoir -- filled with charming photographs from the 1930s, and onwards up to the present day -- tells the story of the adventurous and triumphant life of world-renowned radiologist, Hans Herlinger. Dr. Herlinger, born in Austria to a Jewish family with Hungarian and Yugoslav roots, not only survived World War II, his most important contributions to medicine were made during the sixth, seventh, and even eighth decades of his life. What is still more remarkable, perhaps, is that his story reveals the crucial role that a life-defining dream plays during catastrophic times. For without his fervent hope of becoming a doctor, it is quite possible that Herlinger would not have survived those harrowing years when World War II raged throughout Europe and around the world. Hans Herlinger was born in Graz, Austria after the turn of the century, and was blessed with a nearly idyllic boyhood. He went skiing in the Austrian Alps with his younger brother, Pauli; swam in the clear, cold water of Lake Balaton in Hungary; and, with his family, played on the beach in the seaside resort town of Abbazia, Italy, each summer. A gifted student as well as an excellent athlete, Hans knew early on that he wanted to be a doctor, and enrolled in medical school as soon as he completed college. But as he was about to take his final exams prior to earning his medical degree, his life was violently derailed by the Nazi rise to power. Unexpectedly, Hans was arrested and imprisoned. A few weeks later, his younger brother joined him in the Graz jail. The Herlingers, along with many others in their hometown, were incarcerated because anti-Semitic social policies at the heart of the Nazi agenda werebeginning to make themselves felt -- even before the annexation of Austria by Germany in March of 1938. Fortunately, those social policies had not yet turned deadly. Hans and Pauli were released after several months, but told they must leave their country or face re-arrest. Hans, and later on his brother, flew to Trieste, a seaside town not far from Abbazia, the resort where they'd spent so many summers as children. Stranded in Italy, no longer able to attend school, Hans despaired of ever finishing his studies and earning his medical degree. As he sat at an outdoor caf with other young Jewish Austrians forced into exile, he noticed a sign across the piazza that said 'British Trade Delegation." What happened next was the beginning of Hans Herlinger's initiation into adult life, an initiation which lasted during all the long years of the war. In fact, it became his foundational training, testing his resolve by challenging him at every turn. These wartime experiences helped Herlinger become a dedicated, innovative, and much-loved physician, particularly during his quarter century at the University of Pennsylvania. But as Hans Herlinger would be the first to admit, he did not achieve what he ultimately did without the appearance, at critical moments in his long journey, of a magical way forward. Whenever an insurmountable obstacle appeared to block his path, an alternate route materialized soon after. This may indeed be the true power of a life-defining dream: it allows the dreamer to manifest his own path throughout a long life. Hans Herlinger's memoir is a romantic adventure spanning eight decades of the twentieth century, and offering glimpses of many parts of the world during theearlier years of that century. Above all, it is a memoir that tells the story of a great and touchingly human life.

White Coat is Dr. Ellen Lerner Rothman's vivid account of her four years at Harvard Medical School. Describing the grueling hours and emotional hurdles she underwent to earn the degree of M.D., Dr. Rothman tells the story of one woman's transformation from a terrified first-year medical studen into a confident, competent doctor. Touching on the most relevant issues in medicine today--such as HMOs, aIDS, and assisted suicide--Dr. Rothman recounts her despair and exhilaration as a medical student, from the stress of exams to th hard-won rewards that came from treating patients. The anecdotes in White Coat are funny, heartbreaking, and at times horrifying. Each chapter taes us deeper into Dr. Rothman's medical school experience, illuminating her struggle to walk the line between too much and not enough intimacy with her patients. For readers of Perri Klass and Richard Selzer, Dr. Rothman looks candidly at medicine and presents an unvarnished perspective on a subject that matters to us all. White Coat opens the infamously closed door between patient and doctor in a book that will change the way we look at our medical establishment. In White Coat, Ellen Rothman offers a vivid account of her four years at one of the best medical schools in the country, and opens the infamously closed door between patient and doctor. Touching on today's most important medical issues -- such as HMOs, AIDS, and assisted suicide -- the author navigates her way through despair, exhilaration, and a lot of exhaustion in Harvard's classrooms and Boston's hospitals to earn the indisputable title to which we entrust our lives. With a thoughtful, candid voice, Rothman writes about a wide range of experiences -- from a dream about holding the hand of a cadaver she had dissected to the acute embarrassment she felt when asking patients about their sexual histories. She shares her horror at treating a patient with a flesh-eating skin infection, the anxiety of being "pimped" by doctors for information (when doctors quiz students on anatomy and medicine), as well as the ultimate reward of making the transformation and of earning a doctor's white coat. For readers of Perri Klass, Richard Selzer, and the millions of fans of ER, White Coat is a fascinating account of one woman's journey through school and into the high-stakes drama of the medical world.
