In her new book, “Old School Medicine: Lower tech care to improve the high tech future of healthcare,” Linda Thompson, MD  ’66, uses her insider’s perspective to chronicle how the medical system evolved to its current state of crisis and offers common sense advice on how to improve delivery and patient outcomes more humanely and far more cost effectively. Old School Medicine uses examples from Thompson’s own experience and training that trace where she believes the healthcare system veered off course. Through her own case studies and learning, Thompson explains complex issues whose solutions may seem counter intuitive, and shows us that as the most advanced nation in the world, we can do better.

The book is available now on Amazon.
