Reviews

"This anthology of experience provides a historical reference point at a pivotal time for medicine in the United States. The common concern, articulated by all, is that a cultural shift must occur, a rigid structure become moldable or broken, or abolished." - Frances K. Conley, from the Foreword "Delese Wear has brought together an impressive assemblage of authors, diverse as to age, training, and experience, whose combined voices strengthen the book's important message. Displaying insight and sensitivity, the authors write with honesty and clarity on a topic sorely in need of illumination and significant to all-male and female-in medical education." - Mollie M. Wallick, Louisiana State University School of Medicine
