This summer, I got to accompany "The Doctor" to Casper where he got to do what they call a "RUOP" for a month. It entailed Mike shadowing some fine actual doctors working in various fields; specifically emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, urology, and interventional radiology. Mike loved the hands-on experience of getting to assist a c-section, take patient histories, witness two vaginal deliveries and countless surgeries to microwave tumors and bust up blood clots. (You can read more about his experiences on his blog Wyoming's Watson).

As a part of his RUOP, Mike also had to do some sort of project to promote health and wellness in the "rural community" of Casper. For this, Mike did a "Bike to Work" campaign in the hospital. He is a stud, and did, in fact, bike to the hospital almost every day we were there (except for the two times he popped a tire).
