How Doctors Think

I once remarked to a physician friend that I wished that I had gone to medical school so that I could understand why he was making some of his business decisions that didn’t seem to make sense to me. So when I saw the book, “How Doctors Think” by Jerome Groopman, M.D. at Barnes and Noble, I had to pick it up.

Groopman, holds the Dina and Raphael Recanati Chair of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and is chief of experimental medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. While perhaps lesser known that his colleague Atul Gawande (both write occasional essays for the New Yorker), his insights into the physician-patient relationship are very enlightening.

After reading his work, I would highly recommend in for physician, patients and hospital executives.
