The sex and minority race/ethnicity problems still exist, despite efforts at seeking diversity. Accordingly, this book should be reviewed by program chiefs as a criticism of the old methods and a stimulus for continued change. * The Journal Of The American Medical Association *
Getting Cut is a significant addition to the literature on medical training. * Contemporary Sociology *
...one value of this book is that the perspective of an outsider like O'Connell can lead those of us who are involved in the training of residents to necessary introspection...the book's key concepts...appear valid and relevant, and O'Connell provides sociological insights into the culture of residency that could help program directors and faculty adjust to the inevitable changes that will continue to occur in medicine in general and in surgery in particular. -- Edwin A. Deitch, M.D., University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey * The New England Journal Of Medicine *
