Med School Uncensored: the Insider's Guide to Surviving Admissions, Exams, Residency, and Sleepless Nights in the Call Room by Richard Beddingfield, M.D., is an in-depth look at what people go through on their journeys to become physicians. This book explores the good, bad and ugly parts of becoming a licensed practicing doctor. It looks at everything a person would want to know before applying for medical school.


I enjoyed reading this, not only because I have a crap ton of medical issues and have to see a variety of doctors, but also because I went to college with a lot of friends who went on to become doctors. There is a certain type of brain and personality who can handle it, and it's important to understand what they go through and what it takes to be a doctor besides book smarts and skill with a scalpel.


I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
