Sophomore author and doctor returns with a hilarious and irreverent look into life as a medical resident. “Playing Doctor; Part Two: Residency” is the book you want to read before your next doctor’s visit. It’s a medical memoir full of laugh-out-loud tales, born from chaotic, disjointed, and frightening nights on hospital wards during John Lawrence’s medical training and time as a junior doctor. This candid autobiography will demystify medical education and inspire you. Equal parts heartfelt, self-deprecating humor, and irreverent storytelling, John takes us along for the ride as he tracks his transformation from uncertain, head injured, liberal-arts student to intern, resident and then medical doctor.

John Lawrence was born in New York, grew up in England, and attended Georgetown University where he told his career advisor that the only thing he did not want to be was a doctor. He subsequently survived medical school and residency training in Utah.

John’s first book Playing Doctor is a candid memoir of transforming from an uncertain, head injured, liberal-arts student, into a medical doctor. The follow up books in the series cover residency training with both increasing responsibility and accompanying fear.

John was not the typical medical student, sneaking out of the hospital whilst on-call to audition for television shows in order to pay the rent; writing film scripts and overcoming a nagging imposter syndrome. John has been a river rafting guide, ski race coach, bagel baker, screenwriter, film director, expedition doctor climbing Kilimanjaro with his close friend, Olympic Hall of Fame athlete, Chris Waddell, (Chris is the first paraplegic to summit Kilimanjaro un-assisted).
