I joined Dr. Charlie Crane in Sandpoint for March, 2010. He is one of four MDs in a bustling practice that is primarly clinic with inpatient including ICU crossover. Schedule is highly flexible depending on interests — Dr. Crane does most everything.
The town is small and picturesque. The clinic and hospital are separated by a couple of blocks. The conditions on Schweitzer were really pretty good, and we were on the mountain about 3 days a week.
All at Dr. Crane’s practice are extremely welcoming. Lodging was housesitting his partner’s 40 acre farm, and meant collecting chicken eggs, feeding the rabbits and running with the german shepherd.
Overall an unbelievable experience, highly recommended, and a great opportunity to strengthen primary care, skiing, and farming skills.
