Had a patient who was a scientist with back pain about to head out into the field. Only saw her once. She was essentially going to be camping for the next few months, I think in the outback, so was an interesting sort of “lifeboat” problem in terms of how to advise her on how to exercise and take care of herself.

I want the TV series NOW! “Flying Doctor”; each week our hero/ine parachutes in to a different medical emergency somewhere in the world. Science, politics, espionage, detection and the paranormal (from Season 3 on wards when the mundane plots have been exhausted) combine with sexy scientist and medical drama for the ultimate day time TV thrill.
