Narrative and the Social History of Medicine
This chapter reviews published autobiographical accounts that were written by physicians. It studies what these accounts can be revealed when viewed from the reader's perspective. It then investigates the connection between the narrative form and the messages that these accounts convey not only about the personal lives of their narrators, but also about the social world of medicine. The chapter focuses and analyzes two genres of physician tales for analysis, namely the “female physician” story and the “training tale”.
