In Harvard Med: The Story behind America’s Premier Medical School and the Making of America’s Doctors, author John Langone addressed stress .

In Harvard Med: The Story behind America’s Premier Medical School and the Making of America’s Doctors, author John Langone addressed stress interviews in a chapter on getting in to HMS. There is a wealth of stories, apocryphal and unbelievably true, about the way it wa. Elsewhere in his book, Langone quotes the late Clifford Barger ’43, formerly the Robert Henry Pfeiffer Professor of Physiology and chair of the Department of Physiology at HMS, on the subject of Funkenstein and stress interviews. It became obvious that most people on the admissions committees shouldn’t be there.

Harvard Med, the author makes abundantly clear, is a training ground for medical scientists and specialists, not for general practitioners

Whether or not it's the number one medical school in the country - the point is arguable - Harvard Med is undeniably a prestigious and influential institution whose methods and results warrant examination. Harvard Med, the author makes abundantly clear, is a training ground for medical scientists and specialists, not for general practitioners. How to treat patients is a skill much harder to impart, and few at Harvard try, in Langone's view.

The great white marble quadrangle of buildings that comprise the physical heart of the Harvard School of Medicine is perfectly emblematic of a secular temple of medical science. But behind its gleaming facade, a richly complex human drama is played out year after year, little of which is seen by the world that regards Harvard Med as the greatest center of medical education and research in this country. John Langone, who has had a lifelong interest in and familial and journalistic ties to the school, has done a revealing, unauthorized (despite the remarkable access he was given) group portrait of those students, faculty, deans, and gadflies who make Harvard Med what it is.Who is accepted to Harvard Medical School? Who does the selecting? What qualities (besides academic excellence) do they look for in an applicant? What is it like, day in and day out, to be one of the future physicians or researchers trying to survive in its grip? How has the school reformulated its purpose and reformed its methods through its long history? These and virtually every other significant question readers may have about one of the world's premier medical schools are answered in Harvard Med, an engagingly written, anecdotal, always candid profile of an institution informally known as The Medical School of America.Founded in 1782 in the closing days of the American Revolution, elevated to greatness under the leadership of University President Charles W. Eliot in the latter part of the nineteenth century, Harvard Medical School arrived at its present state of eminence through a process of change and leadership that will intrigue anyone who is curious about the forces that have shaped the medical profession in America.

After I read the book "Becoming a doctor," I became interested in reading books about medical students. So I started reading this book. I have to say that I am disappointed about its content. Although the author declared in the beginning that this is not a book about any particular medical students, I still expected that he would actually tell us some inside stories about Harvard Med.
From all I can remember, he only talked about orientation day, cadaver dissection period, then graduation day. It happens at all other medical schools. Other than the superficial things, he could have spent some time on explaining and exploring the extra materials that Harvard Med provides. I still do not know much about how the students at Harvard are learning medicine. What makes Harvard's teaching so different and so much better than other medical schools? He failed to explain it.
This content doesn't really fit with the book title.
Some of the chapters are not really related to Harvard Med. It has quite a few intensive personal interviews. However, it seems that the author were using those people to express his own views about the impersonal services HMOs that are taking quality patient time which doctors may provide. That is all he talks about, and there was no other kinds of opinions that those doctors, students were expressing. And this part of the conversation is over expressed in this book.
Overall, it is not all about Harvard med. It is really just a collection of random Harvard Med articles.

This book about Harvard Med by a medical columnist in the area, sure enough, imparts a lot of information about Harvard Med.
But along the way it suffers from being cumbersome and somewhat disjointed -- the author constantly flips back and forth between the history of Harvard Med, the stories of graduates, the stories of students, the stories of professors, and discussions of research medicine vs. specialization vs. general practice. Mixed in with these are the author's own experiences -- as a neighborhood boy visiting the campus, and as a coddled medical columnist who was allowed to audit the med school's fundamental gross anatomy class, and whose every ail is treated by the country's leading Harvard doctors.
After reading the book you'll know more about Harvard Med, but you'll probably see your doctor for dizziness.
