About this book

This text is directed at every student of medicine regardless of level of training or specialty ambitions. Without imparting any education in medicine per se, each chapter teaches the prospective medical trainee the art of being a physician. The reader will be convinced early on, that there is more to being a good doctor than medical school didactics. They will learn what residency admission chiefs, interviewers and faculty are most impressed with in an applicant. The first few chapters speak of the importance of, and being the best student of medicine that one can be. An extensive review of the most current government mandated laws, rules and regulations are in dedicated chapters throughout the text and can be used as a ready reference. The book brings to the reader the very up-to-date and new concepts of the ever confusing and changing realm of managed care. Additionally, one of the main purposes of this book, is to introduce to the student of medicine the use and need of advisors and mentors. This chapter entitled “Mentors” embellishes the age old tradition of true mentoring in medicine, a practice which is just now reviving itself.

Medical students, trainees, and practicing physicians at all levels have had an integral part in reviewing and making the chapters more relevant to today’s highly competitive and complicated playing field. The Portable Medical Mentor: Training Success addresses every facet of “how to be a good physician” in an easy to read and down to earth, practical fashion. It is intended that once read, the student will be more competitive in residency applications, better thought of as a physician, by peers, and patients, and more comfortable in their chosen specialty.

About the authors

Larry D. Florman, M.D., was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He attended undergraduate school at The Youngstown University in Ohio and medical school at the University of Louvain in Belgium. He completed a rotating internship at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Montreal; general surgery residency at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City; and a residency in otolaryngology at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital in New York City.  This was followed by a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. He is board certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

Following 28 years of private practice and teaching as a clinical instructor, in 2002, Dr. Florman ended his private practice in the traditional sense and assumed the title of Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University Of Louisville School Of Medicine, where he has been training young surgeons to be plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists. He now limits his private practice to aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book summarizes lessons in medical professionalism gleaned from the observations of physicians who learned from their mentors. The audience includes students of medicine, particularly on the surgical service, ranging from those beginning a surgical clerkship to junior faculty seeking appropriate relationships with eager trainees. … This is a unique tool for learners at all levels.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)
