One of my favorite courses in college was "The American Historical Novel" and I have been hooked on the genre ever since. Paul Bernstein, MD, of the Head and Neck Surgery Department at the San Diego Medical Center has taken a stab at historical fiction with a subject near and dear to the heart of every Permanente physician: the life of Sidney Garfield, MD, and the founding of the Kaiser Permanente (KP) Medical Care Program. Written in the first person from Dr Garfield's point of view, The Courage to Heal takes us from his days as a surgery resident through the signing of the Medical Service Agreement between the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals and the Permanente Medical Groups, which gives KP its current structure.
