Historical Book Spotlight: "Do You Want to Become a Doctor?" (1939)
Back in 1939, Dr. Morris Fishbein set out to give aspiring doctors information about the (then current) landscape of the medical field, along with issues that would be faced in the future.
Topics covered in this book include Medical Education Today, Preparation for Medical School, Cost of Medical Education, The Internship, The Specialist, On Beginning Practice, and The Future of Medical Practice. While written over 70 years ago, many of Dr. Fishbein's topics are relevant for aspiring and practicing doctors today.
