The article “A World of Difference” [Autumn 2001] caught my attention, though I’ve been slow responding. I have practiced “bush medicine” in Alaska, in rural California, in Lima, Peru, in 1960, etc., and had to rely on eye, ear, nose and palpation, auscultation, etc. The old (Osler) simpler techniques of physical diagnosis should not be forgotten or neglected.

How I would have enjoyed Yale’s International Program!

Keep it going!
