In 1972 David Sklar left in his senior year of college to volunteer at a community clinic in rural Mexico. The experience challenged him and, ultimately, molded him into a skilled emergency physician. Years later, in the midst of intense professional and personal stress - emergency room traumas and the end of his marriage - Sklar revisited the village and clinic that had inspired him to be not only a doctor but later a good husband and father.
David P. Sklar is associate dean of graduate medical education at the University of New Mexico Hospital, and he served for many years as the chair for the Emergency Medical School at UNMH. This is his first book.
