"An eye-opener...A WOMAN IN RESIDENCE is filled with integrity."
PHYLLIS CHSLER
This true storry—based on diaries Dr. Michelle Harrison kept throughout her months of residency in OB/GYN—draws us into the serious and thrilling work of delivering new life into the world...and into Dr. Harrison's own struggle to reconcile the often startling difference between patient care and hospital convenience. She writes about her patients, for whom she never had quite enough time; about her collegues, with whom she did not always agree; about the excitement of learning new procedures; about the pressures that never let up. She brings us as close as most of us are likely to come to the intense inner life of a big hospital.
