La Clinica: A Doctor’s Journey Across Borders


by David P Sklar

Book review by Sara Nelson, MD, and Howard King, MD, MPH, FAAP

Spring 2009 - Volume 13 Number 2

The older a physician becomes, especially these days, the harder it is to find time to read a good book. If we are lucky, we find a Moby Dick with good plot, development of character, and implications for our life goals. Such a book is La Clinica: A Doctor’s Journey Across Borders, an autobiographical work by David P Sklar, MD, Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Education at the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Medicine in Albuquerque, NM.
