AbstractA HISTORY OF Arctic and Antarctic exploration, whether to find a northwest passage, north pole, or south pole, is a story of triumph and tribulation. The hardship experienced by polar explorers in the last 1000 years permeates the tales of acheivement. Physicians and surgeons have played prominent roles in the major polar explorations. No Siginificant Article voyage, particularly in the last 300 years, was made without a member of the party trainedd in the management of medical emergencies and in basic surgery. During times of the health, surgeons functioned as the voyage naturelist with expertise in biology, botony, zoology, and the writing of scientific catalogs. Spurred by our interest and fascinated with the history of polar exploration, we reviewed the roles of physicians and natural scientists in Artic and Antratic Adventures.
