Medical Misadventures: What I didn’t Learn in Medical School Publisher: Bellefield Publishing, Toronto Author: Arnold Tweed, MD Genre: creative non-fiction Sub-categories: medical humour, medical essays, memoirs. SUMMARY Medical Misadventures is a glimpse behind the curtain, exposing the predicaments faced by a doctor when things don’t go as expected. The consequences are often humorous, sometimes embarassing, and occasionally downright humiliating. I have experienced them all! But sometimes fortune smiles, the stars align and our prayers are answered. Those are the miraculous events that medical science cannot explain. They remind us that the art of medicine is still important and that hope is never extinguished. I have written this book with medical practitioners and students in mind and have used some medical terminology and themes. But I believe the medicalise will be easily understood by literate lay readers, enough to persuade them that they are peeking into the mysterious and esoteric world of real medicine. My djinn laughs, “They are looking into a mirror. All they will see is themselves on another stage.” This book contains 28 essays distilled from my medical encounters. They lean more towards medical humour than guidance. It is a memoir that has been great fun to write.
