Registrar, The

Janakiramanan, Neela

  0 Reviews

Emma Swann is on the home stretch to becoming a surgeon, but the year she is about to embark on as a registrar will test her to the nth degree. There will be little sleep and little support to underpin her immersion in the prestigious Mount hospital training programme. Bullying and humiliation will be daily fare, but the lofty goal of her patients' wellbeing must prevail.

Portraying the good, the bad and the ugly of the medical establishment, this is an engrossing and gritty depiction of an aspiring medical professional penned by an experienced Australian surgeon.

Comments from BDS Reviewers

"Absolutely engrossing and very well told."

"A compelling read. It flows well and the characters ring true."

"It's a 'warts and all' portrayal of the pressures that trainee surgeons are put under."

"There is an attempted suicide which may distress some readers."

"A gut-wrenching tale of a doctor's battle to become a surgeon."

"Very distressing in places. Maybe if the powers that control the training system read this book, they may realise how bad it is and make some changes."

"It's good that the author is a surgeon herself and has been through the gruelling training programme."

"The writing style was easy to read and the content interesting."
