Cross Cultural Doctoring. On and Off the Beaten Path.

Medical / General



In Cross Cultural Doctoring you will read about my career as a successful obstetrician and gynecologist in academic medicine at a major university.

You will read why I decided at age 55 to leave my position, jump into the unknown and get off the beaten path. I will relate how my wife Anne and I accomplished this and how I kept working for various lengths of time in a number of different cultural settings around the world and how we travel extensively between assignments.

The book is written as a series of loosely connected anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical. Some are funny and some are not so funny. When appropriate I have added some reflections about our experiences.

I try to convey to the reader the excitement we have felt about our adventure. I hope that the book will inspire readers, medical and non-medical, to consider at some point of their careers to take the step to get off the beaten path. Anne and I certainly have never regretted our choices and have never looked back. Reading this book may also inspire readers to write their own story.

I hope that you will enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

I am not interested in making money from this book. I wanted to make the book available for free, but Amazon does not allow that. Thus the book is priced at the minimum of 99 cents. May I suggest that the reader make a charitable contribution to Hospital San Carlos in Chiapas, Mexico, in lieu of the usually accepted fee for a book of this nature. Their website is given on the first page of the book.
