Doctors' Stories The Narrative Structure of Medical Knowledge

by Kathryn Montgomery Hunter

Review by Vincent J Felitti, MD, FACP

Summer 2007 - Volume 11 Number 3

Many physicians will find that this impressive book reveals what we do in clinical practice in an unexpectedly refreshing way. The view is as seen through the eyes of a learned woman, an English professor, who took it upon herself to spend a number of years with physicians and medical students in order to study the use of narrative in medicine. Her book is practical, erudite, interesting, and philosophical in the best of ways.
