Doug Smith is fortunate to again be the physician for a Semester at Sea voyage. Having sailed on the Fall 2018 voyage, he learned how meaningful and affecting it was to become a member of the shipboard community. Doug practiced and taught family medicine at the University of Wisconsin for many years before retiring in 2017. Since then he has worked as a locum (fill-in physician) in New Zealand and Medford, Wisconsin, continuing to enjoy patient contact. Doug’s pulchritudinous wife, Barb, will be joining him on the voyage.
