    I would add:

    The Making of a Surgeon

  • Private_JokerPrivate_Joker Registered User Posts: 812 Member
    This is more of a biography, but I've heard the book is pretty insightful. (Because the surgeon it depicts is a Christian, it has some references to spirituality and God, a forewarning for those who tend to keep their distance from those topics.):

    Gifted Hands

    It is about the life of Dr. Benjamin Carson, a world-renowned neurosurgeon who seperated craniopagus ( ok, I don't think that's the correct spelling...) and how he became a neurosurgeon.

    I'm starting to read the book "White Coat". It is about a woman's experience at Harvard Medical School. It's very good so far!
