Dude, Where's My Stethoscope? free pdf Is a real ER anything like what we see on TV?

We follow Dr. Gray through medical school and two decades of unforgettable ER and family practice. Humorously written in an engaging mash-up of formal prose and informal medical slang with a nod to pop culture and ancient mythology, Dude is a powerful book that captures the essence of what it is to be an emergency room doctor.

About Donovan Gray

Donovan Gray was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1962. After spending several years in Jamaica, Bermuda and Quebec, his family eventually moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Donovan has always enjoyed both writing and the sciences, and in 1983 he found himself having to make an unusual choice: honours English or medical school? In the end, he opted for the latter. In 1990 he graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in family and emergency medicine. After a year of ER work in downtown Winnipeg he moved to rural Ontario to start a practice, and shortly thereafter, a family. Rural medicine's perpetual challenges and unpredictable work hours often led to Donovan being wide awake in a silent home in the middle of the night - optimal conditions for writing! Over the years an eclectic series of short stories, anecdotes and vignettes emerged. Much like primary care medicine, the collection covers the full spectrum of the human experience - from birth to death- from the trivial to the life-threatening- from the uproarious to the sombre. There are even occasional detours into the realm of the bizarre. In 2004 Donovan, his wife Janet and their three daughters heeded the call of extended family and returned to Winnipeg. He is currently a full-time ER physician at the Victoria General Hospital. Once the north gets into your blood it's hard to get it out, though, so he continues to do regular locums in northern Ontario. In the one hour per day when he isn't working, parenting, writing or miles deep in REM, Donovan enjoys gym-ratting, running, comics, movies, photography and participating in zany meetings with an all-guy book club. Donovan has contributed medical short stories to the Medical Post as well as the National Post. Front-running titles for his next book are Night of the Living Jethros and Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be ER Docs. He also hasn't ruled out Fifty Years of Gray!
