tl;dr: Buy this book.

Marino's "White Coats" offers a pithy and surprisingly-insightful glimpse into the goings-on of medical students navigating the constantly-churning world of healthcare. She follows three diverse students through their first four years of medical school at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio, while offering a brief history of the profession and how a doctor has evolved from a witch to a demi-god in people's minds. The book is a quick read, and you'll be left wanting more about its subject matter, all of which are good things to instill in a reader. If you're looking to gain a better sense of what entering med school will be like, or how doctors are transformed into healers, or even if you're looking for a real-life hospital drama, this is the book for you.

I originally read about this book in an online news article. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I first looked at the book as it comes across as more of a high-end picture book. The storyline is complete and coherent as the writer follows three medical students over their four years of medical school. It begins with their admission to medical school to the final match day ceremony. At times, the stories are both uplifting and heartbreaking. I would recommend this book to any pre-med student interested in going to medical school.

I loved the pictures in this book, and the three cases that were followed. As much as I read about medicine, it is very hard to capsulize the essence of the intensity of that experience. i wish I was up to that challenge myself. Fortunately, my cousin is, and Case Medical School is his 'holy grail'. This book gave a very insightful and accurate view of that experience, great reading for those that want to wear the white coat.
