Life in Medicine

Have you wondered what it is like to be a doctor or nurse?

As a child I wanted to be a nurse until I learned women could be doctors. I worked as a registered occupational therapist before becoming a librarian. I’ve always been interested in allied health or medicine. Many books provide a glimpse into the world of medicine. I found The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee to be fascinating.
