Description: Few outsiders realize that student illness is frequently, and ironically, a by-product of medical training. This unique study by a medical doctor and trained anthropologist debunks popular myths of expertise and authority which surround the medical establishment. Dr. Sinclair asks provoking questions about the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge within the field. In detailing all levels of basic training in a London medical school, he describes both "official" and "unofficial" student activities.

This insider's expose should prompt a serious reconsideration of abuses in a profession which has a critical influence over untold lives. In particular, it suggests that the structures and discourses of power need to be reexamined in order to provide satisfactory answers to sensitive questions relating to gender and race, the dialogue between doctor and patient, and the mental stability of students under severe stress.
