Thirty-three physicians reflect on the profession in personal interviews in The Soul of the Physician: Doctors Speaking about Passion, Resilience, and Hope by Linda Gambee Henry and James Douglas Henry (American Medical Association Press, 2001).
UW doctors among the interviewees include Janis Bridge, assistant professor of medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine, Douglas Paauw, professor of medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine, and Maile Anslinger, second-year resident in the Seattle/Boise Primary Care Internist Pathway.
Bridge is an attending physician at UWMC-Roosevelt. Paauw holds the Rathmann Family Foundation Endowed Chair in Patient-Centered Clinical Education. He is the Department of Medicine coordinator for student teaching, and an attending physician at UWMC-Roosevelt. Emily Transue, a recent UW medicine residency graduate and former Providence chief resident, is also profiled.
Barricade Books recently published the biography Physician: The Life of Paul Beeson written by Richard Rapport II, staff neurosurgeon at Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound. Beeson, UW emeritus professor of medicine, was a member of the faculty from 1974 to 1979. He was also chair of medicine at Emory and Yale Medical Schools, Nuffield Professor at Oxford University and Veterans Administration Distinguished Physician at the UW.
