About the book:
Annabel Tilson is a medical student starting her first clinical rotation where she has high hopes of mastering patient care like her famous neurosurgeon father. However, she soon realizes that studying for surgery exams and taking care of patients is only part of the complex burden of her role as a surgical team member.
Grappling with a resident who hates her and a dreamy infatuation for her chief resident, she discovers an inordinate outbreak of patient mortality. But for Annabel to dig further puts her at risk of failing the rotation and ending her future career as a physician.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
EXCERPTAnnabel got up and skimmed the bulky surgical textbooks on the shelf. Her paperback was a student’s condensed manual meant for studying and passing exams; it lacked the detail found in the texts in the office. She looked up burns and read an excellent dissertation on the subject. The information about the degrees of burns and complications was all there. Compared to the first two years sitting in lectures and labs, she already found the wards much more beneficial. There she could see firsthand what the textbooks were talking about so it made the material easier to understand and retain.
She lost track of the twenty minutes she spent reading and then realized she had better get to the OR. After donning a cap, booties, and a mask like she had been instructed the day before, she entered the appropriate room. The activity caught her by surprise and she was horrified at what she saw.
