Now a classic! The hilarious  novel of the healing arts that reveals everything your  doctor never wanted you to know. Six eager interns  -- they saw themselves as modern saviors-to-be.  They came from the top of their medical school class  to the bottom of the hospital staff to serve a  year in the time-honored tradition, racing to answer  the flash of on-duty call lights and nubile  nurses. But only the Fat Man --the Clam, all-knowing  resident -- could sustain them in their struggle to  survive, to stay sane, to love-and even to be  doctors when their harrowing year was done. From the Paperback edition.

Training of doctors hasn't changed too much from the '70s, except now in the U.S.A. the insurance companies get the bloat by controlling every second of every day in every medical facility. Excellent read.

The first half was repetitive, dull and served nothing more than a history lesson in the misogynistic environment of 1970's medical training. The second half was, although, quite a nice read, showing the raw humanity and sad realities of the arduous esoteric intern year.
