Kathryn interviews Thomas Sims MD, author of “On Call in the Arctic: A Doctor’s Pursuit of Life, Love, and Miracles in the Alaskan Frontier”. Imagine a young doctor in 1972, trained in the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment, suddenly transported back to one of the world’s most unforgiving environments—Nome, Alaska. Dr. Sims’ memoir reveals the thrills and terrors of frontier medicine, where he had to rely on his instincts to persevere against all odds and help his patients.
