His 2006 short story collection Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures drew from his experiences in medical school, and was picked up by HBO for a TV adaptation that aired in 2010. He still works as an emergency physician at Toronto East General Hospital and does international air evacuation work and expedition medicine on Arctic and Antarctic ships. Brought to you in cooperation with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Canadian Embassy in Beijing.
