According to the
book description of Jihad and American Medicine: Thinking Like a Terrorist to Anticipate Attacks via our Health
System, “Jihad and American Medicine predicts exactly what happened in the UK, and will likely happen
again. Namely, that healthcare workers are uniquely positioned to fly 'under the radar of homeland security'
and carry out terrorist missions virtually unimpeded. Dr. Dorin is a physician, author, and expert in healthcare safety and
security. He has written what is essentially a counter-terrorism manual geared toward the public, healthcare professionals
and government officials on the national security vulnerabilities inherent to the way medicine is practiced in developed nations.
