Where Bubbles Meet: A Doctor's Journey Through Community Service

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Dec 30, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 137 pages
My journal of a doctor experiencing community service in under-resourced medical facilities, during public sector strikes and the world cup addresses the diffi cult and often funny experiences of providing medical care to divers and often poverty-stricken patients. The journal is a personal account and takes place over a one year period in many different clinics and types of clinics (primary health care, HIV/ AIDS, psychiatry) servicing the West Rand. It also contains photographs of the clinics, strikes and world cup celebrations in order to take the reader closer to the experiences.

About the author (2011)

I am currently a palliative care doctor working for Hospice. I studied Medicine quite late as I had fi rst done a BA, Honours and Masters degree in Psychology. Qualifying as a doctor in South Africa requires 2 years internship and one year community service. My community service was done in a variety of rural and community clinics with poor medical resources. I wanted to capture some of these experiences through a journal. I have only published a journal article and have not been on writing course
