A Kernel in the Pod: The Adventures of a "Midlevel" Clinician in a Top-level World
A Kernel in the Pod is a spellbinding autobiography about one man?s journey to becoming a Physician Assistant and carving out his niche in a--sometimes hostile--medical practice world. Michael Jones weaves a riveting chronicle that reads like an adventure novel carefully seasoned with hilarious anecdotes. The reader is transported from the hills of Tennessee, to the hills of Afghanistan; from a plush suburban sub-specialty clinic to a Third World slum; from the hot, dry, crowded streets of Cairo to the lonely backwoods of Michigan?s snowy Upper Peninsula and finally to a world class medical center. What is it like to practice medicine in America--legally--without having the abbreviation "M.D." after your name? Mr. Jones takes us on a very candid trip through the inner workings of the medical practice community and gives an in-the-trenches account of what?s it like to establish himself as a clinician in the face of what seems like insurmountable odds. It is a vividly told story that will delight not only midlevel clinicians and midlevel wannabes, but to everyone--be they caregiver or patient.
