Bosk CL. Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press; 2003. ISBN: 0226066789.
In this seminal study, Bosk, a medical sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania, spent a year observing the surgical residents and faculty at an unnamed hospital, in the process exploring the balance between autonomy and oversight in medical training, how physicians deal with their errors, and the nature of accountability in the medical profession.

The book is informative for both lay readers and clinicians.
