A Country Doctor's Diary Stories and memories from over 50 years in rural medicine
by Dr Robert Tilney Cotton
A Country Doctor's Diary: stories and memories from over 50 years in rural medicine is a memoir by Dr Robert Cotton, who has worked as a country GP in South Australia and Victoria. The book offers insights into medicine from the 1950's to present day, it recounts fascinating cases and the courses of action taken and it provides useful advice and messages for new medical students and health professionals. Dr Cotton's 'good practical medicine' has seen him become 'part of the family' for many of his patients, who themselves, have become his life-long friends.
