This is a story of the education of a physician which starts with Richard Grollmanís first day in medical school and ends as he walks out of the hospital where he has just completed his residency in Internal Medicine. In between, he is ignored, pummeled, encouraged to seek a different profession, admonished by God to behave himself a little better, discovers that the brain is not a vital organ, is sucked into a "black hole" along with thousands of lost lab reports, inadvertently becomes Chief Medical Resident, and finally discovers he has learned a lot about people and medicine if only by osmosis!

Dr. Kurtzman's recent novel entitled, Doing Nothing: The Ceremony of Innocence, is one of a manís journey through life as a medical student and physician. This is a remarkable book with great literary value, written by an accomplished teacher, writer and editor of the medical profession. Doing Nothing is Dr. Kurtzmanís first book of fiction. It is a contribution to both those in the literary world and to those in all areas of the medical profession.


Novels about the experience of medical training abound, The House of God comes to mind, but there has never been anything as zany and hysterically funny as this novel. It is as if the three (I never noticed Zeppo) Marx brothers had been cloned, at least once each, and thrown into medical school and post-graduate training under the tutelage of Jonathan Winters and Don Rickles. Kurtzman should have written for all of them!
