From foreign literature I can advise:
-World famous book written by no less famous person - "Do No Harm" by Henry Marsh. And in addition to read his second book "The Calling". In his books, he describes the intricacies of his profession - neurosurgery, as well as the problems faced by any doctor in a hospital setting.
- "The final diagnosis" Arthur Haley. A very interesting book that talks about the problems of relationships between hospital staff, as well as what consequences this leads to.
I also recommend a series of books "Charming intestines", "Knock-knock, heart", "What hides leather. "
There is actually a lot of literature, the main thing is to be able to search.
4 pieces came to mind. It may be interesting to get acquainted with Solzhenitsyn's novel Cancer Ward . I read that the realism in the novel by Alexander Isaakievich was highly appreciated by real oncologists. Bulgakov's stories from the cycle "Notes of a Young Doctor" , the basis of the plots was the writer's real experience. Another doctor-writer Veresaev and his book "Doctor's Notes" . And finally, "The Mysterious Story of Billy Milligan" Keyes, however, there is a mental hospital.

I'll write 140 characters about what I'm ashamed of, because I can't allocate time to read this book, because it's a very interesting beginning ...
