Summary "In The Surprising Lives of Small-Town Doctors, physicians put down their stethoscopes and pick up their pens to share some of the most frightening and pivotal moments of their careers. From igloo house calls to bandaging animal bites to performing surgeries they are ill equipped to do, these accounts speak of the many rewards of practising medicine in small communities. They also detail the fears, failures, and challenges of providing health care in the farthest reaches of our country--where the need for doctors is the greatest. Collectively, they capture both the history and the future of rural medicine in Canada. Dr. Paul Dhillon practises rural and remote medicine in Saskatchewan and is a Captain with the Canadian Armed Forces. He recently worked in an Ebola treatment centre in Sierra Leone."-- Provided by publisher
