Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385337388, Paperback)Now a classic! The hilarious novel of the healing arts that reveals everything your doctor never wanted you to know. Six eager interns -- they saw themselves as modern saviors-to-be. They came from the top of their medical school class to the bottom of the hospital staff to serve a year in the time-honored tradition, racing to answer the flash of on-duty call lights and nubile nurses. But only the Fat Man --the Clam, all-knowing resident -- could sustain them in their struggle to survive, to stay sane, to love-and even to be doctors when their harrowing year was done.

The House of God does for ordinary hospitals what M.A.S.H. did for the US military hospitals during the Korean War. The book is wildly irreverent and teaches the reader all the things doctors never want to divulge.
