I love to travel. While still in training in internal medicine, I earned extra money to fund trips abroad by covering for community-based general practitioners (GPs). This usually involved staying in the GP’s house for the weekend, holding the cell phone and carrying a medical bag in what I call ‘the boot’. I am a country girl at heart and driving around the Irish countryside between seeing a couple of patients at the practice was a nice escape from the city.
