In Physician: The Life of Paul Beeson, Richard Rapport, MD, chronicles the life of a giant in 20th-century academic medicine, known for his research contributions, teaching abilities, and work with numerous medical organizations. Rapport wishes to tell the story of Paul Beeson's life and preserve the ethics by which he has lived. The book could have been entitled "The Life and Times of Paul Beeson: His Teachers, Colleagues, and Students," because it describes events and individuals who influenced Beeson or were influenced by him.
