Every Third Night

Every Third Night is an eye-opening yet poignant novel set in a busy, dehumanizing, and unyielding New York City residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1984. It brings the reader into the real world of medicine at a time of limited supervision and brutal duty hours through the vantage points of young physicians enduring stressful conflicts and volatile relationships.

"No way to buck the system, the dirty little secret of systemic abuse that had been the core of medical training for as long as it existed in this country." (Ch.1, p8-9)
