Yukon Doctors (23 records)

Yukon doctors and nurses wore many hats in the days of the Klondike gold rush. A doctor had to pass as internist, orthopedic surgeon, obstetrician, dentist, and even detective. Tackling emergencies with little equipment, a Yukon doctor usually worked in isolation. Most often, only one doctor inhabited a 400 mile radius. This database provides names of early medical professionals in the Yukon.
