The Medical Man Afloat By H. Sheridan Baketel, M. D., New York fsometimea Surgeon in the international Mercantile Marine Company, N the spring, when the thoughts of the average young man are said to tur11 to thoughts of love, the fancy of the average young practitioner just out of the hospital, and the recent graduate who cannot afford the time a hospital course consumes, turns to the very serious and practical thoughts of future livelihood. I desire to call the attention of this class of men to an opportunity which offers a "living" from the start, and which has many advantages quite unknown in any other avenue of medicine-that of a ship's sur- geoncy. All transatlantic and many of the coast liners sailing out of New York carry surgeons, whose business it is to guard the health of the passengers and crew. Unfortunately, with one exception. vessels of foreign register carry medical officers of their own nationality, but with this handicap to American medical men, there are over forty berths on ships open to our graduates. Of the transatlantic liners, the American Line, the sole line under the American Hag, has four ships sailing out of New York for Southampton, and four out of Philadelphia for Liverpool, carrying American surgeons. These vessels are extremely popular with the traveling public, and offer the surgeon excellent opportunities for clinical work as well as for earning a very comfortable stipend. The Holland.-American Line has four large ships running between New York and Rotterdam, which carry American medical men, although the company is distinctly Dutch. Furthermore, American physicians are employed on these ships: Atlas Line to VVest Indian and Central American ports, twelveg Bermuda Line to l68

There seems to be among the medical profession a very general misconception as to the professional at- taimnents of the surgeon on steamships. The idea is broadcast that a ship's doctor is usually a man who failed to make good in practice ashore, or whose habits are such as to disqualify him for independent medical work. It is unfortunate that such a belief is prevalent, because, as a matter of fact. the average steamship surgeon is as well qualified as the average physician ashore, and indeed many of them are men of the highest scientific qualifications. In the first place, the number of men desiring to go to sea as surgeons is so great that steamship companies are enabled to take their pick. The doctor aboard is not the social butterfly he is generally believed. While here and there may be found a man who devotes much time to social amenities, the majority only see the passengers at the table over which they preside, and occasionally on the promenade deck. He leads practically the same kind of life as his con- frere ashore. The larger vessels seldom carry fewer than -1,500 people on each trip, and in the busier season 72,500 would be nearer an average number. Each one of these persons can call on the surgeon at any time, day or night. His aihnents are the same at sea as on shore, augmented by the troubles peculiar to the sea. If anything, he is more particular at sea than when ashore, and as a result the doctor listens to more tales of woe in one trip than he would in six months ashore. ' The surgeon's duties are confined to certain lines not unlike those of the general practitioner. The bulk of his work is with the medical sick, but he I69
