Pamela Grim is an emergency room doctor who sometimes goes on forays into Third World countries to practice medicine there as well. There has been a spike in the number of doctors writing books (I think we can blame the popularity of ER for thi., and while all interesting, they are often not particularly well-written.

About book: An emergency medicine physician for nearly a decade, Dr. Pamela Grim has delivered babies, treated heart attacks, saved car accident victims, comforted the dying, and consoled the living who were left behind. She has worked all over the world, caring for victims of gang life in America's inner cities, victims of the war in Bosnia, poverty-stricken patients in Nigeria, and bank presidents in the United States. Relating these rich and varied experiences with compelling prose, Dr. Grim takes readers into the .
Toward the end of Just Here Trying To Save A Few Lives, Dr. Pamela Grim briefly likens working in an emergency room to lifting a rock in a sunny meadow and looking at the creatures crawling underneath. Grim's stories are gripping, urgent, and shocking, but her straightforward candor makes the most unbelievable situations inescapably real.

The book centers, however, on life in an American emergency department, as Grim remembers it from the vantage point of Africa (where she does eventually become nostalgic for well-stocked supply cupboards and a more comprehensible chaos). She organizes her stories into a series of "Lessons in Emergency Medicine," in which she addresses the reader directly. by Pamela Grim. Similarly, her tales of attempting to treat war victims under impossible conditions are brutally realistic. While a weary Grim ponders the possibility of taking up the serene practice of boutique medicine (. doing hair transplants and skin peels), at story’s end her medical future remains unclear. Readers can only hope she doesn’t stop writing. Forget the made-up medical dramas on television; this is the real thing-gripping, powerful, and memorable. Pub Date: July 19th, 2000. byPamela Grim.
