IcuPAC Posted January 28, 2012 Share Posted January 28, 2012 Hello everyone, I'm a practicing PA and am also interested in becoming a writer. I am writing a fictional story of a woman who is a medic in Afghanistan. I was hoping that some people would do me the kindness of sharing a view lines about what it means to be a medical professional in combat in a place like Afghanistan or Iraq. In particular: 1. Who do you report to? Is the military chain of command any different for medical personnel? 2. Are there any women who can comment on how their gender affects their work, ie going into combat situations? 3. While in Iraq or Afghanistan, do you work in shifts and have days off, weekends off, and what do you do on those days off? 4. How freely (if ever) were you able to leave the military base? For example, if you were stationed in a "safer" area? Thank you so much in advance! jstuben Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
