That is sufficient reason for The Year of the Intern.

Americans cling to their myths. The basis for this adoration of the medical world lies deep in the psyche of the modern American. His romance with medicine is demonstrated daily by the hours he spends transfixed in front of the television set watching the diagnostic and therapeutic triumphs of omniscient physicians. The manuscript of this book was read by eight doctors, none more than three years past his internship. All but one agreed that the content is authentic, bluntly realistic, and completely representative of his own situation. That is sufficient reason for The Year of the Intern.

I hope Robin Cook got it all out here. This book is a constant gripe against medical school, the inadequate training that interns get during 24 hour shifts where mistakes get made and private doctors deliberately obscure the training that interns are there to receive. Cook says this book is a true story, fictional characters, but this is really the way it is. The medical student with high ideals is spit out the end of the year of internship demoralized, disillusioned and disrespectful. Even I hope Robin Cook got it all out here.

Listen to books in audio format. ROBIN COOK-New York Times-best selling author and master of the medical thriller-returns with another crackling tale of unchecked greed, medical malfeasance, adn starling science.

He began writing the book while serving on a submarine, basing it on his experiences as a medical resident.

The Year of the Intern, the first novel by Robin Cook and very different from his thrillers, follows the journey of intern Dr. Peters through his year of placement. It is an insider's perspective of the medical world. He began writing the book while serving on a submarine, basing it on his experiences as a medical resident. When it did not do particularly well, he began an extensive study of other books in the genre to see what made a bestseller. He decided to concentrate on medical suspense thrillers, mixing intricately plotted murder and intrigue with medical technology.

Robin Cook, a medical doctor, is a founding father of the "medical thriller" genre of popular fiction. I believe my books are actually teaching people. His 1977 novel Coma was a sensation. 1972: Year of the Intern 1977: Coma 1979: Sphinx 1981: Brain 1982: Fever 1983: Godplayer 1985: Mindbend 1987: Outbreak 1988: Mortal Fear 1989: Mutation 1990: Harmful Intent 1991: Vital Signs 1992: Blindsight 1993: Fatal Cure 1993: Terminal 1996: Acceptable Risk 1996: Contagion 1997: Chromosome 1997: Invasion 1998: Toxin 1999: Vector 2000: Abduction 2001: Shock 2003: Seizure 2005: Marker 2006: Crisis 2007: Critical 2008

The nurse's voice on the phone is desperate, but young Dr. Peters, in his first weeks of internship, is only bone-tired and a little afraid. He has forgotten when he last slept. Yet he knows that in the coming hours he will have to make life-or-death decisions regarding patients, assist contemptuous surgeons in the operating room, deal with nurses who may know more than he does, cope with worried relatives and friends of the injured and ill, and pretend at all times to be what he has not yet become--a fully qualified doctor.This book is about what happens to a young intern as he goes through the year that promises to make him into a doctor, and threatens to destroy him as a human being--

At first, the temptation is to read this book as an autobiography of Robin Cook. Don't give in to it, or you might be further tempted, as I was, to swear off reading anything else by the author. The experiences of the main character are fascinating, and that almost allows you to overlook his increasingly unavoidable character flaws. Mercifully, Dr. Peters isn't Dr. Cook. He's an avenue by which Cook diagnoses the symptoms of a disease doctors catch from internship. It is damning of the medical field that this book is so relevant in the 21st century.

In the end, the book is brave, subtle, and excellently crafted.

The Year Of The Intern chronicles the year a young doctor spends as an intern. Along with lots of fascinating medical detail, the book takes a searingly honest look at the physical and psychological cost to the intern. These include: the near-indescribable exhaustion, the expectation of carrying out complicated and risky procedures the intern does not have the experience for, the life-or-death decisions to be made daily, dealing with anxious, angry and distraught relatives and, worst of all, the gradual ebbing of empathy eg Dr Peters starts thinking of each patient by their disease rather than their name.

What really disturbed me was the fact that this was written in 1972 and so little has really changed. This should be compulsory reading for anyone thinking of entering the medical or nursing professions. If it doesn't put you off, you've found your calling!

This book was written in the early 70's. What I loved most about this book is the truth to it. I am a registered nurse and work with a lot of interns. It is amazing that although this book was written a long time ago, nothing has changed. This book is not only entertaining, but it also will give you a very good idea of what it is REALLY like to be an intern. It did amaze me after reading this that after all this time, again, nothing has changed. I could almost say that this book does not belong in the fiction category. Robin Cook fans will enjoy this one and medical professionals will appreciate this one as well! Happy Reading!! :)

Read this book many years ago and just had to read it again. I don't know how anyone makes it through a year of being an intern. With lack of sleep due to such long hours, makes a person wonder just how many mistakes are made. I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Cook at a medical convention in Boston, MA. Made my day!
