Praise for
WHATI LEARNED IN MEDICAL SCHOOL
“This vibrant collection celebrates the diversity of medical trainees’ experiencesand brings to the forefront voices too often marginalized in medicine. A testa-ment to the changing face of the profession, this volume reminds both healersand patients that medicine’s strengths arise from the rich variety of its practi-tioners.
What I Learned in Medical School 
is the very real humanity of these young physicians.”
SAYANTANI DASGUPTA, M.D., M.P.H.,
author of 
 Her Own Medicine: AWoman’s Journey from Student to Doctor 
“This fascinating collection of experiences underscores the need to implementmuch higher levels of cultural competency in our medical schools. The book has tremendous educational value and could be used as a catalyst for change.”
MAUREEN S. O’LEARY, M.B.A., R.N.,
Executive Director of the Gay andLesbian Medical Association
“This book is a must-read for all humanitarians, but especially for medical stu-dents of color. The stories in this book speak to the soul and heal while inspir-ing the reader.”
FRANK YONG CHOO AN, M.D.,
President of the Asian American Physician Association of Southern California, South Bay Region
What I Learned in Medical School 
should be mandatory reading for all medicalschool deans.”
OMEGA C. LOGAN SILVA, M.D., F.A.C.P.,
Past President of the Amer-ican Medical Women’s Association
“What I Learned in Medical School 
looks at medical education through the eyes of a diverse collection of students who challenge many of our assumptions abouthow medicine is taught and practiced. The essays ask us to think about how wemeasure and treat such differences as race, socioeconomic status, and even weight as part of the identity of the physician—and how a larger, unspokenprofessional identity has often marginalized many of its members or evenexcluded a greater richness from its membership.”
SUZANNE POIRIER, PH.D.,
Professor of Literature and Medical Edu-cation, University of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago
What I Learned in Medical School 
is a ground-breaking coming-of-age-in-medicine book. Each contributor offers a personal and often critical narrativeat the intersection of personal identity and the rigidly demanding professional
 
sphere of medical education. This book says more about issues of professionaldevelopment, and how institutions both thwart and encourage it, than any I’veread. These are the issues medical educators should be talking about during whitecoat ceremonies.”
DELESE WEAR, PH.D.,
coeditor of 
 Educating for Professionalism: Creating aCulture of Humanism in Medical Education
“This is an insightful and revealing examination of medical education from thepoint of view of the student. Fascinating and well written, it represents aninvaluable addition to the historical and sociological literature on medical edu-cation and should be of great interest to general readers as well.”
KENNETH M. LUDMERER, M.D.,
author of 
 Learning to Heal: The Development of American Medical Education
