Woman in the Surgeon's Body by Joan Cassell
Book DescriptionSurgery is the most martial and masculine of medical specialities. Anthropologist Joan Cassell enters this arena to explore the work and lives of women practising their craft in what is largely a man's world. Cassell observed 33 surgeons in five North American cities over the course of three years. The text follows these women through their gruelling days: racing through the corridors to make rounds, perform operations, hold office hours, and teach residents. We hear from them in their own words discussing training and their relations with patients, nurses, colleagues, husbands, and children. Do these women differ from their male colleagues, and if so, do such differences affect patient care?
