|Arnold Tweed is a son of the prairies. He grew up on a farm in southern Manitoba, went to High School in Killarney, and graduated from Brandon College in 1959. His early ambition was to return to the farm, but he got side-tracked and graduated with an MD from the University of Manitoba in 1964. Since then he has forayed into several medical fields: general practice, emergency medicine, intensive care and anesthesiology – and more recently writing medical memoirs. He has always preferred the freedom of rural life, has travelled widely, and worked in Canada, Denmark, Singapore, New Zealand, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Nepal. His travels and diverse medical ventures have been well rewarded. Some of the most important lessons he has learned about medicine have come from chance encounters with unusual patients, unique characters and strange medical situations. This set of stories builds on some of those experiences.
