Searching in the Jungle for the Lost Art of Medicine

Ben Labrot

Newly trained medics are entering an era of virtual and remote consulting. They may have never done a house call, may never have been allowed to do a consult lasting more than 15 minutes and may rarely work up a patient from beginning to end where continuity of care has been eroded away in a shift towards more sessional working.

The richness of context to a patient’s presentation is increasingly lost in the design of modern, fast paced, high resource medical settings.

In contrast, resource-limited health care is a blend of the best of traditional patient-centred medical care and the best of 21st century cutting edge technology. It’s an arena in which the doctor comes into your home with his black bag, but where ‘medicine’ and ‘magic’ meet, and out of that black bag comes portable ultrasound, telemedicine connectivity, and POC diagnostics.

Participating in resource-limited mission work provides rare opportunities for modern physicians to experience and flex the skills on which our medical forebears relied, as well as the dramatic renewal of purpose that comes with providing high-quality healthcare that is needed and impactful–the kind of ‘proper doctoring’ that most of us envisaged at the bright-eyed outset of our careers, and which is so increasingly rare to be able to practice that physicians who can afford to are leaving medicine in higher numbers than ever before.

The skills, context, and renewed inspiration found by so many participants in overseas medical work are highly transferable and astonishingly relevant to your practice at home. Come sail with me on a journey on which we will seek out together–and find–the lost art (and perhaps the lost heart) of the vocation we are privileged to practice.

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
