Life On The Ground Floor: Letters from the Edge of Emergency Medicine

James Maskalyk

Deeply personal in its scope, doctor and activist James Maskalyk–author of the highly acclaimed Six Months in Sudan–draws upon his experience treating patients in the world’s emergency rooms. From Toronto to Addis Ababa, Cambodia to Bolivia, he discovers that although the cultures, resources and medical challenges of each hospital may differ, they are linked indelibly by the ground floor- the location of their emergency rooms. Here, on the ground floor, is where Dr. Maskalyk witnesses the story of human aliveness –our mourning and laughter, tragedies and hopes, the frailty of being and the resilience of the human spirit. And it’s here too that he is swept into the story, confronting his fears and doubts and questioning what it is to be a doctor.
