The Flame Broiled Doctor

From Boyhood to Burnout in Medicine

Authored by Franklin Warsh MD MPH
Edition: 1

Sometimes the “call” to enter medicine might just be a wrong number. In The Flame Broiled Doctor: From Boyhood to Burnout in Medicine, meet Dr. Frank Warsh, the very last person admitted to med school one year. Never quite finding his niche, Frank spends twenty years bouncing from one misadventure to another in residency, family practice, Public Health, and inner-city medicine. Finding comedy and hypocrisy at every turn, until anger, cynicism, and burnout finally take their toll, he’s survived to tell the tale in this equally tragic and darkly funny memoir of life as a doctor. Death, faith, sex, urinary catheters…nothing is sacred and nothing is safe, from the angst of early medical school to the sanctimony of public health bureaucrats. This is medicine as it so often truly is, from its highest (drug-induced) heights to its deepest (and most irritable) bowels. You’ll never think of doctors in quite the same way.
