About the Book
The Practice Test is a parody of the many board exams that physicians take during training. However, unlike those tests, this book is not really about the clinical aspects of medicine, but was written to help physicians navigate the 'life-issues' of training and practice.

All too many physicians, young and old, were never prepared for the threats to their marriage, their children, even their own self-worth that arose during their careers.

In The Practice Test, Dr. Edwin Leap, an emergency physician for 17 years, tries to give readers a rational, compassionate and often funny sense of perspective on the struggles that his colleagues endure, in hopes of giving them the courage to have happier, more meaningful lives and careers. Or if not that, at least to have the honesty to admit that they need a change.

Whichever issue he addresses, whether marital infidelity, malpractice, children, unkind physicians, customer service or even death, Dr. Leap's years of experience as a physician, and a writer to physicians, are evident in the balance and humor he brings to each discussion.

The Practice Test has something to offer for anyone affected by medicine: pre-medical students, retirees, physician spouses and kids, medical educators, physicians in training, policy makers and even educators.

The Practice Test is a bit of medicine, with a spoonful of sugar, for an ailing, frustrated and exhausted medical profession.
