Abstract:

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--their calm, 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.
