A celebrated doctor's coming of age story in Cambodia It was while in Uganda as a young and idealistic physician that Dr. Richard Heinzl finally heard his true calling: to set up a chapter of Doctors Without Borders in his native Canada. As a prerequisite to fulfilling his Medecins Sans Frontieres dream, Dr. Heinzl was sent to a war-ravaged town in Cambodia to work a year in the field. Cambodia Calling is this young doctor's harrowing personal story of setback and accomplishment in the dangerous and inhospitable environment of a remote Cambodian village. His compelling narrative details how he confronted his own illness and self-doubt, as well as the reality of treating those who could not be saved. Richard Heinzl, MD (Oakville, ON, Canada) founded the Canadian chapter of Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres), the Nobel Prize-winning humanitarian relief organization. He studied medicine at the University of Toronto, Harvard, and Oxford.
