While supervising a small group of interns at a major New York medical center, Dr. Robert Marion asked three of them to keep a careful diary over the course of a year. Andy, Mark, and Amy vividly describe their real-life lessons in treating very sick children confronting child abuse and the awful human impact of the AIDS epidemic skirting the indifference of the hospital bureaucracy and overcoming their own fears, insecurities, and constant fatigue. Their stories are harrowing and often funny their personal triumph is unforgettable.

This updated edition of The Intern Blues includes a new preface from the author discussing the status of medical training in America today and a new afterword updating the reader on the lives of the three young interns who first shared their stories with readers more than a decade ago.
