I wanted to capture the raw experience and perspective of medical school training through the eyes of a medical student, in real time.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) May 20, 2015
What happens when “Sex and the City” meets “Grey’s Anatomy?”
In “Burning the Short White Coat: A Story of Becoming a Woman Doctor,” Dr. Eve Shvidler narrates the humor and heartbreak in love and medicine through young medical student Elle Gallagher, just as Candace Bushnell does with Carrie Bradshaw and Shonda Rhimes does with Meredith Grey.
A medical chick-lit novel, “Burning the Short White Coat” exposes the personal battles that single women must overcome in balancing a demanding profession and the desire to find a trusting and loving relationship.
Dr. Shvidler’s inspiration for writing “Burning the Short White Coat” came from her own real-life experiences while in medical school.
“I wanted to capture the raw experience and perspective of medical school training through the eyes of a medical student, in real time,” Dr. Shvidler said.
The book also emphasizes that doctors are human, too, and can make mistakes.
“While our society is supportive of women and their desire to become professionals, we are still bound by our societal goals to find love, relationships and eventually a family in order to call ourselves whole,” Dr. Shvidler said. “How we get there and balance it all is always a challenge we face.”
