More About the Author

Marty Makary is the author of "Unaccountable," a story about modern medicine's dangerous practices and its nascent transparency revolution.

Dr. Makary is a practicing surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital and an associate professor of health policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. A medical commentator for a CNN and FOXNews, he speaks regularly on the sociology of medicine and the future of healthcare. Dr. Makary led the effort of the World Health Organization (WHO) to measure hospital complications and was the first to publish studies on the use of a checklist in surgery. He later worked closely with Dr. Atul Gawande to develop the official WHO checklist. Dr. Gawande credits the co-development of the surgical checklist to Dr. Makary in his best-selling book, "The Checklist Manifesto".

Dr. Makary's research has appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine and numerous other medical journals. He is the recipient of research grants from the Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and has written extensively on the subject of patient empowerment in healthcare. He serves in leadership roles at the American College of Surgeons and is the author of "General Surgery Review," a standard textbook used in many medical schools. In 2007, Dr. Makary was named the Mark Ravitch Chair of Gastrointestinal Surgery at Johns Hopkins. His current role is Director of Surgery Quality and Safety at Johns Hopkins. He specializes in cancer surgery and is the Director of the Johns Hopkins Pancreas Islet Transplant Center.

Dr. Makary holds degrees from Bucknell University, Thomas Jefferson University, and Harvard University. He completed his surgical training at Georgetown University and subspecialty training at Johns Hopkins University. He lives in the Washington D.C. area.

It was a relatively quick read and reasonably thorough. I passed and didn't do any more than this and the latest SESAP. No review course needed otherwise.

There isn't a concise, good review for surgery (compared to the Miller series for other residencies) but this one does a good job. Lots of good pictures, text is a good size, and covers the basics. A good read for PGY-2 and up.
