Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive guide to the multitude of factors involved in becoming a family physician. Issues ranging from residency selection to time management to practice start-up tips are covered.
Purpose: The text is written as a guide to medical students contemplating or beginning a residency in family practice. It is designed to be a comprehensive overview of both the demands and opportunities presented during the three-year residency experience. In 350 pages, both residency basics as well as lesser known elective experiences are described in detail.
Audience: Although this book is written for students, residents, and practicing physicians, it will be most appreciated by medical students who are contemplating either a career in family medicine or who have just made the decision to pursue a family practice career. The contributors are all members of the internationally-recognized family medicine faculty of the Mayo Clinic, and are well recognized in their fields.
Features: Each component of residency training is covered in single chapter setting. Emphasis is placed upon practical approaches to the subject matter. Hints are given about how to succeed on individual rotations, and lifestyle issues are emphasized. Numerous illustrations and tables add to readability. Although designed to give the book a personal appeal, the near constant reference to the Mayo Clinic structure, as well as repeated quotes by the Mayo brothers, will turn off some readers.
Assessment: This is an excellent guide to those who are embarking on careers as family physicians. The editor has gone beyond the usual offerings of basic specialty introduction. The personal approach and technical detail will help allay some students' fears of what residency will be like, as well as provide a challenge to residents in their first few months of training.
