The beloved classic memoir of residency, by renowned pediatrician and writer, Perri Klass
Originally published nearly two decades ago, Baby Doctor is as fresh and pertinent as it was upon publication. Publisher’s Weekly called it “Riveting…An inspiring coming-of-age story and an inside look at medical education…A colorful, candid view of the exhausting, exhilarating and dehumanizing subculture of pediatric residency.”
Klass, a five-time O. Henry Award winner, delights readers, both lay and professional, with her engaging essays about the trials and tribulations of becoming a practicing pediatrician. Written with a new foreword and annotations, Baby Doctor offers a renewed perspective on Klass’s experience as a pediatric resident, and underscores the depth and resonance of the book’s themes.
Inspiring, compassionate, and compelling, Baby Doctor will fascinate and delight all who experience this roller coaster of a ride through a young doctor’s training.
