Thanks waxbaro for your list about Novel Medicine.

I read a few books from your list:

1- The last king of Scotland: this novel is a fictional memoir of a Scottish doctor in Ugandan President Idi Amin's employ based on impressions of actual events.

2- The cancer ward: This novel is set in a hospital in Soviet Uzbekistan in the 1950s. As the title hints, the plot focuses on a group of cancer patients as they undergo therapy. The novel deals with Political theories, mortality and hope, themes that are often explored either through descriptive passages or the conversations the characters have within the ward.

You forgot to include Tracy Kidler book," Mountains Beyond Mountains"  It's an awesome book, about Harvard Dr, who dedicated his time to help with Infectious disease in Haiti. I don't wanna spoil,for you, if your read this book it will definitely change your perspective about life and medicine in general in a positive way.
 

Another one I recommend is "When the spirit catches you"!! I have few pages to complete...........

I agree with Amal, that is a good non-fiction novel written by Tracy Kidder.
The story traces the life of noted physician and anthropologist called Paul Farmer....
The title of the book comes from the Haitian proverb, “Beyond mountains there are mountains.”

About your second option, I will try to find and read it. thanks
Pharmacist is highly-trained and skilled healthcare professional who perform various roles to ensure optimal health outcomes for his patients.

ٌRead this book "1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World" it's a good one.
Get the 2nd edition.
The Muslim doctor shares with the Muslim patient the two main characteristics:
the faith in God and destiny, and the conviction that there is a cure for every disease.
