One medical student travels the globe to find the humanistic side of medicine. Brian Neeseā€™s Living & Dying in the Fourth Year is the exotic memoir of his final year at the Medical School for International Health. Traveling with passport and stethoscope, he learns that patients are stories to be told, not just machines to be fixed, and doctors are made through mistakes. This book will inspire anyone curious about becoming a doctor, or who longs to throw on a backpack and hit the next train going anywhere.
