From medical student to doctor, it sounds relatively simple as long as you're prepared to put in some hard work. But medical students and doctors are people, too, and juggling preparation and entry into a demanding profession with the vicissitudes of life is no easy thing.In Taking Medicine, author and former GP Lyn Miller draws on her own experiences to tell the story of a medical student, Alison. From the formaldehyde-filled atmosphere of the dissection room to her first day on the wards, Alison must combine study with the subtle and emotional demands of relationships and the highs and lows of life. A friend is seriously ill; a boyfriend wants to pursue his own career; social life becomes fractured; exams loom. Alison has to find a way through.
Lyn Miller is married with two grown up children and lives in Edinburgh with her husband and dog. She studied medicine at Edinburgh University and then specialised in General Practice, going on to work as a part-time GP in East Lothian for 27 years. She has always loved reading, describing herself as a readaholic, and decided to try her hand at writing. Taking Medicine is her first novel and is loosely based on her experiences at medical school.
