<p>Becoming a doctor is a rewarding, but difficult process. <br /><br />The first major step? Getting accepted to medical school. <br /><br /><br /><br />Good grades and high scores are not enough to guarantee admission. Medical schools are looking for something more. While there are many resources that explain the mechanics of the admissions process, this guide goes a step further and highlights the intangible qualities that admissions committees REALLY desire.<br /><br /><br /><br />In <em>Get Ready for Your White Coat: A Doctor’s Guide on Getting into the Best Medical Schools</em>, Dr. Olatokunbo Famakinwa shares her knowledge of the qualities that are important for a career in medicine. Drawing on her own experience and her years of advising hundreds of students, Dr. Famakinwa explains the importance of traits like integrity, empathy, and intellectual curiosity in medicine and how an aspiring doctor can work to develop these attributes.</p>

Physicians undertake a noble, demanding profession, improving patients’ lives. But the rapidly changing world of healthcare, and the complex knowledge and technology involved, challenges this calling. Physicians need to be healers, confidants, and caregivers while developing skills as leaders and partners. This indispensable guide provides practical, actionable learning to help physicians become effective, compassionate, and confident leaders, transforming healthcare into what patients want, need, and deserve.<br /><br />Says Dr. Cochran: “When I became a surgeon, I had four years of medical school, six years of residency training, and a rigorous certification process to verify my competence. When I became a leader in the business of medicine, most of my training was on the job, just in time, and trial and error, which is a very different journey.”<br /><br />In this book, Dr. Cochran draws on his own path, focusing on essential skills for effective leadership, to provide in-depth examinations of critical topics including communication, leading change, managing performance through culture, and relentless personal development.<br /><br />Dr. Jack Cochran is a Stanford-trained surgeon and served as executive director (CEO) of the Permanente Federation at Kaiser Permanente from 2007 until 2015. He is also the coauthor, with Charles Kenney, of The Doctor Crisis: How Physicians Can, and Must, Lead the Way to Better Health Care.<br />

Customer Reviews
<p><b>A brilliant and courageous doctor reveals, in gripping accounts of true cases, the power and limits of modern medicine.</b></p><p>Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is -- complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human. </p><p>Atul Gawande offers an unflinching view from the scalpel's edge, where science is ambiguous, information is limited, the stakes are high, yet decisions must be made. In dramatic and revealing stories of patients and doctors, he explores how deadly mistakes occur and why good surgeons go bad. He also shows us what happens when medicine comes up against the inexplicable: an architect with incapacitating back pain for which there is no physical cause; a young woman with nausea that won't go away; a television newscaster whose blushing is so severe that she cannot do her job. Gawande offers a richly detailed portrait of the people and the science, even as he tackles the paradoxes and imperfections inherent in caring for human lives.</p><p>At once tough-minded and humane, <i>Complications</i> is a new kind of medical writing, nuanced and lucid, unafraid to confront the conflicts and uncertainties that lie at the heart of modern medicine, yet always alive to the possibilities of wisdom in this extraordinary endeavor.</p><p><i>Complications </i>is a 2002 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.</p>
