Overview

Staying Human during Residency Training is a concise manual designed for medical students, interns, residents and postdoctoral fellows in all areas of specialization. The first edition, published in 1991, provided hundreds of practical tips on coping with stress, sleep deprivation, time pressures, and other issues of concern to hospital residents. The second edition, published in 1998, updated and expanded the original by providing guidance on career choices and financial planning, as well as suggestions for enhancing personal and professional relationships. It also discussed ethical and legal matters and issues pertinent to women, parents, and international and minority students.

Widely anticipated, the third edition of this essential reference emphasizes, not only surviving, but thriving during internship, residency, and fellowship. It contains hundreds of new references, websites, addresses and tips on coping with medical training in North America and worldwide. Peterkin emphasizes ways of deepening relationships with colleagues, friends, and family, and fostering more empathic connection with patients. He also offers practical antidotes to cynicism, careerism, and burnout. As with the first and second editions, the new Staying Human during Residency Training will prove to be a veritable bible to medical students and new physicians pursuing postgraduate training.

"...a concise manual providing hundreds of practical tips for students, interns, residents, & postdoctoral fellows in every specialty...updated to include guidance on careers, finances, relationships,ethical/legal matters, & much more."
