Focusing on the hot subject of health care in America, Robert Marion weaves a dramatic story that follows one year in the lives of three pediatric interns under his tutelage at New York's Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Using their experiences as his narrative framework, Marion explores the successes and failures of this country's medical training, examining every facet -- from the shifting landscape of medical rules and regulations, to the ever-changing health-care system, to the gritty daily details of blood and bone. Filled with thrilling heroics, harrowing tragedies, and inspiring triumphs, Rotations masterfully reflects the author's decades of experience supervising medical students, and presents an unparalleled historical perspective on the practice of training young physicians today.
