Rural medicine provides Dr. Heinrich Brussow of High Level with the freedom to be the doctor he wants to be.

“You’re very autonomous in the rural areas, and you have a very wide scope of practise - you do some surgery, obstetrics, administration, you do everything.”

Being a rural docotor also enables Dr. Brussow to live life on his own terms, within the parameters of his profession.

“It’s an ability to work, to do what you want to do, to determine your hours that you want to work. If you want to work long hours, you work long hours. If you want to go on a holiday, you go on a holiday. You’re pretty much your own boss.”
