Book DescriptionWhat happened that changed the priest—the revered healer of antiquity—into a person of science? How was the modern doctor made?
Physician is Rajeev Kurapati's earnest attempt to answer this question and others central to the practice of medicine. For instance, how have the advances of medical technology influenced society's perception of death? How do physicians balance thinking with feeling when dealing with critically ill patients? How do we meet the needs of patients seeking a personal connection to their doctor in what may seem to be an emotionally deficient medical landscape? Is it possible to overcome some of the compromises we've had to make along the way? What is the promise of modern medicine and its limitations? And notably—as medical care becomes more and more digitized and automated, will the medical degree—a universal badge of respectability—continue to hold value?
Dr. Kurapati, a practicing hospital physician, succeeds in gracefully exploring the depths of what it really means to be a doctor—and a patient—at this time in our human history, and his blueprint for building a stronger future of healthcare is an important and valuable one.
